    The role of ever-changing arts is to awaken sensitivity to the meaning and power of God’s truth that is to create— through the impact of new ideas— an awareness of the significance of life under God and a revelation of Christ’s love through us.

    At Eastbrook, we have a committed group of artists eager to invest in the ministry and bless the church. Eastbrook Church is supportive of the expression and growth of worship through the arts. The church provides various gallery spaces throughout the campus to exhibit visual artistry.


    Gallery Submission Information

    All work submitted to the gallery is juried and screened for appropriateness based upon: quality, subject matter, critical relevance, professionalism and an artist’s development with relation to the particular needs of the gallery at a given time. Applicants will need to provide a visual description of their work, the number of items, and their value to the committee prior to acceptance. Two dimensional works should be ready for hanging (framed, matted appropriately). Three dimensional works will be installed on sturdy foundations by the artist with assistance from a committee member. An artist does not need to be a member of Eastbrook to submit work to the gallery space, but needs to be a believer in Jesus Christ. It is at the discretion of the committee to determine if the work upholds the gallery mission and meets the criteria.

    Artwork will be on display for a minimum of one month (four weekends) and may be displayed for a maximum of 2 months. Artwork will need to be set up and taken down by the artist on a date and location approved by the Visual Arts Committee. Any permanent contributions must also be approved by the committee and First Impressions team.

    It is our policy not to discriminate on any basis other than the selection criteria described above. Occasionally the gallery will solicit works from specific community groups that are under-represented or marginalized in mainstream culture. We do this in order to offer exhibitions to as diverse a group of artists as possible while supporting the gallery’s curatorial mission.

    Submissions preferably made via email; please email  to inquire of other means of submission. Include: Images of recent, available work; List identifying all images (indicating Artist Name, Date, Title, Medium, Size); Contact Information, website link, biographical data, exhibition history, artist statement.

    Due to scheduling limitations, it is not always possible to accept all suitable works submitted. Artists whose works are declined are invited to resubmit.
