Colossians Art Show

Calling all Walnut Hill visual artists! Walnut Hill is having an art show centered on our upcoming Colossians sermon series – specifically Colossians 1:15-23. We want to invite you to submit your new or existing visual works (paintings, sketches, photography, collages, tapestries, etc.). This show is for people of all ages, and we will work to display as many works as possible.

While the sermon series goes from March 3 through June 2, the show will open on Palm Sunday, March 24.

How to be involved:

  • You must be a regular attendee of Walnut Hill.
  • Please read our Art Show Vision Statement below and submit works that align with the overall theme.
  • While we prefer presentation-ready works, we will accept both framed and unframed pieces of art.
  • Works must be able to be hung on a wall (paintings, sketches, photography, collages, tapestries, etc.).
  • We will accept originals or professional prints of your work.
  • While we will not display prices, we will display the title, artist name, medium and your website (if applicable).
  • Please fill out the Submission Form and deliver your work and completed form to Walnut Hill’s receptionist at the front desk by March 20.
  • An opening art reception will be held at the church on Palm Sunday, March 24, from 2-4 p.m.
  • The show will last the entire length of the Colossians series and officially end on June 2. Pieces may be picked up the following week. Please let us know if your piece can’t be displayed that long.

Art Show Vision Statement
Colossians 1:15-23

We are looking to display artwork inspired by something within the following passage. Pray, ask God to inspire you, and express your creativity!

“The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in Him all things were created: things in Heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. And He is the head of the body, the church; He is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything He might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile to Himself all things, whether things on earth or things in Heaven, by making peace through His blood, shed on the cross.

Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now He has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in His sight, without blemish and free from accusation — if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the Gospel. This is the Gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under Heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.
