In cooperation with the Liturgical Arts Festival of Springfield (LAFS), the Springfield Art Association (SAA) will host a juried exhibition of liturgical and sacred art as part of the biennial, interfaith Liturgical Arts Festival: Come Creative Spirit. All spiritual interpretations, approaches and media are welcome. We hope for an exhibition of work that will support diversity, promote understanding and foster tolerance.
This exhibition is open to all artists living in the United States, working in all media. All submitted artwork must explore a spiritual or religious theme. Work must be original and completed in the last three years. No previously submitted work will be accepted.
A $30 non-refundable entry fee is required per artist. Each artist may submit up to three entries for consideration, one full image and one detail of each will be accepted. Please include a written explanation of your work with your entry. Up to 1000 words will be accepted.
A total of $1,500 in cash prizes will be awarded: Best of Show, First, Second and Third place.
Entries will only be accepted through the website www.callforentry.org, also known as CaFE. This program is free to artists and if you are not already enrolled, it will open a world of exhibition possibilities.
Works may be for sale. The SAA and LAFS will share the 35% commission on sales from this exhibit.
