Call for Art: Artists Celebrating Christ Art Show


Artists Celebrating Christ

Artists Celebrating Christ plans 13th inspirational event in March

Registration for artists opens Nov. 1

Registration opens Nov. 1 for artists to enter their faith-based work in a juried show that is part of an exciting, inspirational event to be held in Bismarck March 27-29, 2020.

Marking its 13th year, the Artists Celebrating Christ Art Show provides an uplifting experience for artists and community members alike.

The show has grown each year and includes juried visual and liturgical art; student art and classes; workshops, demonstrations, and vendors; as well as performing artists, an artist reception and a silent auction. 

Quality of the show is one of the recurring themes in participant and attendee feedback. But that’s not all. Shannon Wirrenga, one of the founders of the event, says fellowship among Christian artists has been a big part of its success. “Many have expressed relief in finding a venue for those art pieces,” says Wirrenga.  “We get many entries shipped from out of state as well as local artists. Some artists travel from as far as Nebraska because it feels like a retreat for them.”

But there is something for every art lover at the three-day event, and all ages are welcome to attend. Wirrenga says participants greatly appreciate the light the art shines.  “I’ve seen people get teary-eyed and emotional while viewing the show and reading the statements that accompany each piece.”
