Promises Virtual Exhibition

Exhibition Dates: November 27, 2022 – January 7, 2023

Juror: Dr. James Anno, Associate Curator at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (TX)

In the Gospel of Matthew, an angel appeared to Joseph in a dream to reveal that Mary’s child would save His people from their sins. The child Jesus would fulfill the promises God had made in the law and the prophets. A silent saint, Joseph is faithful. The Bible records no words spoken by him, only that he responded with action and obedience to what God revealed to him. In Joseph’s humility and obedience, he also fulfilled promises – welcoming Mary and her child into his family. During Advent we remember the promises of redemption and salvation, and Joseph reminds us that we can participate in those promises through the everyday choices we make.

– Convey a sense of hope that healing and wholeness are possible
– Themes of unity, expansive love, healing, and wholeness should be the emphasis of the piece.
