Call to Artists: Pilgrimage

Call to Artists: Pilgrimage

The Trinity Arts Commission is pleased to announce our annual gathering of artistic expressions from across the Diocese of Oregon! We invite submissions by artists from across our diocese on our 2019 theme: Pilgrimage. 

In the past, we have presented Artists Among Us, an exhibit open to artists from Trinity & the local community, with great success, but to better embrace Trinity’s role as the Cathedral to the Diocese of Western Oregon, in 2016 we formally expanded the exhibit to include artists from all 76 parishes of the diocese.

Last year’s exhibit not only featured 26 paintings on the theme of Mary Magdalene, but also included a performance of music on this theme. Truly a multi-disciplinary event, the Rev’d Dr. Matthew Lawrence also led a class on Cynthia Bourgeault bestselling book The Meaning of Mary Magdalene, adding a welcome element of spiritual formation to the project.

In the past, parishes represented have included Trinity Cathedral Portland, St. Michael & All Angels Portland, Good Samaritan Corvallis, St. John the Divine Springfield, St. Gabriel’s Hillsboro, St. Francis Wilsonville, St. George Roseburg, and others. We hope for even more parishes to be represented this year!

The Details:

All submitted art will be displayed July 14 – Sept. 8  at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Portland.

An opening 9:00 a.m. Forum with artists and 11:00 a.m. reception is planned Sunday, July 14.
