SELECTIONS FROM THE
Student Art Exhibit at the Archdiocesan Conference and
"I invite you to see the beauty in every piece of artwork, for it speaks from the soul and spirit of these student artists...some of whom are newer in their relationship with Christ."
"I thank the Lord for the gifts poured out upon these students, and I pray that you will let their continue....
CREATIVITY ENTERTAIN YOUR HEARTS, MINDS, SOULS AND SPIRITS. MAY THEIR CHOICES OF COLOR REMIND US OF GOD'S CREATIVITY, THEIR PARTICULAR MEDIUM OF CHOICE REMIND US OF ALL THE MATERIALS THE LORD USES TO ENGAGE US , AND THAT THEIR INSPIRATION WILL LIFT OUR SPIRITS, TOO, IN KNOWING THAT THERE ARE YOUNG ARTISTS WHO ARE BOLDLY EXPRESSING THEIR LOVE FOR THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST IN SUCH A BOLD AND DARING WAY.
May our young people never fear to express their love for their relationship with Christ with such bravery."
Fr. Bruce Ansem
The theme for this student exhibit according to one student was "to show our relationship with faith and our [community]" another wrote that "our project was to focus life through Christ." Each student offered a faith-centered reflection on his/her piece. The large "Gate of the Sheepfold " piece (at the end) was submitted by the Immaculata Junior art students. They explained that it as "Jesus made out of nails in varying heights. 'And we know that for those who love God , all things work together for good, for those who are called according to its purpose (Romans 8:28).'" This piece is a gift to their school.
Captions- there's too much to write, but I've listed some details.
Many chose to quote scriptures in order to validate their ideas. I found that inspiring.
