From August 13 to 23 2018, Harvest Christian Church in Port Elizabeth will be hosting a themed art exhibition by local Christian artists.
“The exhibition is open to all Christian artists who wish to glorify God and showcase their God-given talents”, said Ken Holloway who is the creative pastor at Harvest.
The exhibition will take place at The HubCafé at the church in Albert Road, Walmer
Local artists are encouraged to submit their pieces by Monday the 13th, selections will be done by Wednesday August 15. There is no entry fee and all submissions will be curated by a panel and selected pieces will be exhibited and displayed at Harvest as well as online. Unselected pieces will only be displayed and categorised online. However, all submissions will be offered for sale.
The organisers of the exhibition have invited more than 100 local artists and the response has been excellent, but they cannot yet confirm the number of participants.
The theme for the debut exhibition is “Deeper”, and is left open for interpretation by the artist, said Holloway.
This biblically-inspired theme is found in the following scriptures: “Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty? They are higher than the heavens above — what can you do? They are deeper than the depths below – what can you know? Their measure is longer than the earth and wider than the sea.” — Job 11:7-9 (NIV) and Ephesians 3:18 (NLT) —“And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.”
The church has released a statement on the selection criteria, one of which is that only original pieces — no copies — will be accepted
Some of the funds raised at the exhibition will be allocated to the Harvest Missions Poor Fund.
