The Cross View Christian Art Festival is free and open to the public.
For the 37th Christian Art Festival, Cross View presents Remix: Interpretations of Paradise, exploring artists’ interpretations of paradise throughout the centuries, including the work of contemporary artists. Visualizing “Paradise” in the broadest of terms, the exhibit begins “In the Beginning…” and includes the Garden of Eden, earthly glory, and culminates in heaven. Works range from realism to abstract, historic to contemporary. The exhibit displays an overall aura of the joy, peace and glory of abiding with God as depicted by artists throughout the centuries. The exhibit will be comprised of works on loan from the Hill Museum and Manuscript Library of St. John’s University, Collegeville, MN, and the Westminster Gallery of Westminster Presbyterian Church, Minneapolis. It will also include works of award-winning artists from Cross View’s recent juried exhibits.
In addition to the featured exhibit, the Cross View Christian Art Festival features a juried exhibit of Christian art in a wide variety of media by regional artists.
Entries must be original works and must express a Christian thought or idea. The entire spectrum of God’s creation can be utilized. Almost any artistic medium may be used, including watercolor, oils, sculpture, mosaic, ceramic, glass, printmaking, drawing, photography, weaving, stitchery, metal, textiles, assemblages, banners, jewelry, calligraphy, scale models and computer generation. Works must be prepared for gallery display for acceptance.
