Now in its sixth year, the Guild’s annual traveling exhibit provides regional churches and community spaces with a curated exhibit of high-quality original artwork, complete with publicity and programming materials. Our newest exhibit is titled Opening and features 19 original works of art by Guild faculty, staff, community members and artists in residence.
- How does your (this) artwork open you to deeper connection with your body—its glorious beauty and its limitations?
- How has your (this) artwork surprised you, opening you to a curiosity about new ideas, possibly even new ways of thinking?
- How does your (this) artwork create space for the gifts of emotion and intuition? How does it open you to a more authentic sense of presence and wholeness in your life?
- How does your (this) artwork open/expand your sphere of influence (or simply, perspective) to include the Other—neighbor, stranger, earth, cosmos?
