Benedictine Center Issues Call to Artists
The Benedictine Center is issuing a call to Minnesota artists to participate in its ninth annual Juried Art Show planned for January 27 thru March 13, 2020. Submissions are due January 15. Awards totaling $375 will be distributed to the top winners.
According to Sam Rahberg, director of the Center, awards total $375 ($150 for first place, $125 for second, $100 for third). Winners will be announced at the official reception on January 29.
Called Seeing God, this Juried Art Show provides a venue for artists who think deeply about their work and whose creativity helps viewers experience the Divine. According to Rahberg, “We believe art can be an interpretive lens into the mystery of God, so we are looking for works that capture that deep sense of wonder.”
Contest rules, guidelines and entry forms, can be found at http://www.benedictinecenter.org under “Events & Registration.” For more information contact Kathy Fleming, Artist Coordinator, via email: [email protected], or call 612-839-4439.
The Benedictine Center’s Seeing God art show has attracted more than 800 entries in its nine-year history. Its goals are to encourage artists who give form to God’s revelation in human life, nature and the cosmos; and to show how arts can expand our capacity to encounter God.
The Benedictine Center of St. Paul’s Monastery, is located at 2675 Benet Road in Maplewood.
