Featured Exhibit
Sola Scriptura: Biblical Text and Art

In honor of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Bowden Collections has organized Sola Scriptura, Biblical Text and Art, an exhibition that celebrates the remarkable treasure that God has given humanity—the gift of the Bible. As the 500th anniversary of the Reformation is being celebrated across the world, it is important to remember that Martin Luther’s ground-breaking translation has made it possible for Christians over the last 500 years to read the Bible in the vernacular. Over 40 works of art are presented in three segments: Translating the Bible (pages from historical bibles), Illuminating the Bible (diverse ways scribes and calligraphers have illuminated the biblical text) and Picturing the Bible (artworks in which the biblical text is an integral part of their creations).

Juried Exhibit

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.
