The Greatest Gift Art Exhibit


March 25, 26 & 27
Artist Reception on March 24 @ 7PM

Location of show:  Keller Williams Realty // 3955 S. Soncy, Amarillo, TX


The Greatest Gift is an art exhibit made by our community and inspired by their own relationship with God.

Holy week (Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday) is when Jesus Christ journeyed into Jerusalem to carry out His ultimate sacrifice through His crucifixion.

The idea is to have individuals pray about Christ’s journey to the cross and then, by using their God-given talents, convey their feelings in art form to share with the public.
A variety of mediums is encouraged and may include, but is not limited to: painting, photography, sculpture, ceramics, leather tooling, metal work, welding, conceptual arts and visual arts. This is an opportunity for the novice and artisans to create and present a work of art that reflects, from their unique perspective, the Greatest Gift.

“…Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends…”
John 15:13

Submissions will need to include artist’s information. Deadline for submission is March 15th. Contact Rena’ Byers Longino for more information: 806-584-8683 or opendag8@gmail.com
