Calling Artists: You are invited to share a spiritual art piece (one or more), any medium, that symbolizes an aspect of prayer or that can be used as a short meditation. Also with each piece you will need to have a typed meditation (not lengthy), in large font on a 8 1/2 x 11 paper, with the title of your art piece, medium, your name, an artist statement and the meditation. Artists will also need to supply their own standing easel for hanging art, or table top easel, or pedestal. We do have some table space available to display some of the art. We do not have any wall space however for hanging art. Artist are welcome to attend any or all of the viewing times, but please remember that it is a meditation time, and if you would like to discuss your art pieces with participants, we ask that you do so in a room away from the meditation areas.
