"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Calling all Minnesota artists!
Pictures at an exhibition.
Minnesota Artists Exhibition Program will be hosting its once every ten year "Foot In The Door" exhibition at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts from February 19 to June 13, 2010. I'm so excited. Entries are accepted Thursday February 4 through Sunday February 7. Go to the website for details: Foot In the Door 4.
What's so great about it? First of all it is crazy fun - to see such a variety of works. Plus - you can say you, or such and such piece, has been exhibited at the MIA - how cool is that. I exhibited before (a painting!) - I think in 1990 - yes, I have exhibited my work at the prestigious Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
The work has to be 12" x 12" or under - to fit in the door (actually it is a box). I paint 12" x 12" all the time - well not always. I'm torn what to enter however... "The Sin of Ham" or "Watchmen". I really want to enter "The Sin of Ham". Memo to self: Call curator and ask if nudity is okay. (I'm sure it is.)
So local painters and writers of icons - think about entering your work. It's soooooo fun!
