John Wesley UMC Sponsors Art Contest and Sale

Date Posted: 5/30/2012

God saw all the He had made, and it was very good.  And there was evening, and there was morning – Genesis 1:31.


The scripture above is the inspiration for the art contest and sale being sponsored by John Wesley UMC.  The event will be held Friday, September 14, 4-8 p.m. and Saturday, September 15, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.


The interpretation of the scripture will be left entirely to the artist.  Four categories, (oil, watercolor, sculpture and mixed media) will be judged.  The Best of Show winner will receive $1,000.  Each winner of Best of Category will receive $250 and Honorable Mention will receive ribbons.


The guidelines for the contest are:

§  Entries must be received either digitally or in person by August 31

§  Artists are limited to one entry per category

§  Artwork entered into the contest must be brought to the church with a fee of $25 per entry by September 10th


A separate contest using the same rules will be held for children 12 years and younger.  Ribbons will be awarded for the different categories.  All prizes will be awarded September 15 at 5 p.m.


The contest is part of the church’s community outreach mission, sponsored by the JWUMC Endowment Fund.
