About

Call to Artists

During the age of the Renaissance, artists were commissioned by patrons and churches to create works based on interpretations of biblical scenes. The last year has been filled with chaos and turmoil, which led a couple of anonymous local art collectors to re-read the Book of Revelation in the New Testament of the Bible. Enlightened by the vivid imagery depicted through words, these art collectors/enthusiasts are sponsoring an art exhibit to feature selected works of art inspired by the Book of Revelation. They are particularly interested in seeing artists’ interpretations of the imagery and storytelling from various verses, such as Revelation 2-3:21 (The Seven Churches), 2:17 (The rock with a special name on it), 16:13 (The three like frogs) to name a few. For more verses, you can access an online version of the Book of Revelation here https://www.biblestudytools.com/revelation/

The overall theme of Revelation is time. For those not familiar with the Book of Revelation, it focuses on the following key themes:
1) Crown of Life (Rev 2:10)
The saints who remain faithful until the end will receive a “crown of life”.
2) War in Heaven (Rev 12:7)
The “war in heaven” is a spiritual war for our souls. Satan does not want the faithful to be saved.
3) Lamb of God (Rev 5:12) is the Alpha and Omega ( Rev 21:6 )
The “Lamb of God” is Jesus Who was “slain”. Jesus died for us. He has the power over TIME. The “Alpha and Omega” means He is the beginning and the end of TIME.
4) The Harvest (Rev 14:15)
The “Harvest” is the final day when all on earth will be judged for their works; whether they were faithful or unfaithful.
5) A New Heaven And A New Earth (Rev 21:1)
The earth and heaven we now know will be destroyed. A “new heaven” and a “new earth” will be the new home for the faithful.
6) Tree of Life (Rev 22:2)
Jesus promised us eternal life. The leaves on the “tree of life” are for healing. Whoever eats of the tree can live forever. But they have to be in heaven because that’s where the tree is. Only the faithful will be in heaven.
7) Jesus Is Coming Again! (Rev 22:12)
The faithful are in the church of Christ. The church is the “bride of Christ”. Jesus promised He would come again for His bride. The church will be glad when Jesus comes!
