CALL FOR ARTISTS:
PEACE, BE STILL: Artists of Faith Respond to an Anxious Age”
A Call for  Submissions for a Juried Show

The Malcolm Initiative for Art in Evangelism and Missions at Biola University; in collaboration with The Center for Christianity, Culture and the Arts at Biola University; and Upside Down Gallery, a ministry of Jews for Jesus, invite visual artists to submit work for this juried exhibition.

Although our lives are by and large well-provided for—most of us have enough food, money, clothes, and shelter to live well—we remain plagued by elements of human brokenness that we struggle to fully name. This show seeks to provide space for artists of faith to explore this concern—how does my experience of faith intersect with the lived reality of anxiety in my life and the lives of those in my community? We hope and believe that our faith will guide us in our quest to find solutions to our inner world. What happens though, when faith leaves us with questions we have yet to find answers to, at times thickening our experience of anxiety?

As this exhibition explores the theme of anxiety through the lens of Christian faith, all artists who would self-identify as Christian (a follower of Christ) are eligible to submit. This call is open to artists at all stages in their career (student, emerging artists and well-established artists). The exhibition theme is intended to be inclusive rather than restrictive in content and form.

Exhibition locations and dates:
The Green Art Gallery at Biola University — Oct. 25 - Nov. 23, 2022
Upside Down Gallery in Westwood — Dec. 2022/Jan. 2023 (specific dates TBD)
