Call to Artists: Silence

Hey, all you artists! Yes, I'm looking at you. :)

I've just posted a new call to artists over on Redeemer's artsblog, and here it is:

CR Gallery at the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer invites artists to submit artwork.
Deadline: October 26th, 2007

“(Since) nothing that can be seen can be God…then to find God we must pass beyond everything that can be seen and enter into darkness. Since nothing that can be heard is God, to find Him we must enter into silence.” —Thomas Merton

The transcendent power of art can be a means to entering that silence. CR Gallery seeks works of art that explore the theme of silence for a juried exhibition.

Where: Episcopal Church of the Redeemer, 6211 NE 182nd Street, Kenmore, Washington

When: December 2, 2007 – February 2, 2008

Opening Reception: Thursday, December 6th, 6 – 8pm

How: Submit up to 3 jpegs via e-mail to Please include your name, contact information, and a few words about your work. Also include title, medium, framed dimensions, and retail price of each image submitted. Submission deadline is October 26th. The work will then be juried and acceptance notifications and delivery instructions will be sent out via e-mail by November 2nd. For work that must be shipped, all shipping costs will be the responsibility of the artist.

Cost: $15 (USD) entry fee, for up to 3 images, payable via PayPal.

Artwork must be ready to hang, preferably from a wire. Photographs and artwork on paper must be framed with a wire attached for hanging. Canvases do not need to be framed, but the sides should be painted, either a solid color or as a continuation of the image, in order to give a neat, professional appearance, and must have a wire attached to the stretchers for hanging purposes.

Artwork can be for sale. The gallery will direct buyers directly to the artist and take no commission.

The gallery will take care of advertising and publicity, and artists with accepted work will receive postcard announcements to distribute themselves. Please have high quality digital images available for possible use in publications and postcards.

In addition to being displayed in the nave gallery, accepted artists will also be featured on the church’s website.

For ease of transport, and so we get to meet you, we are especially seeking artists in the area of the Puget Sound, but this call is open to all artists over 18.

If you have any questions, you can comment here or you can e-mail me at

Please feel free to share this with any other artists you think might be interested.

Happy Creating!
