Illuminated texts are featured in 35th annual exhibit in Minnesota

Over 40 works of art are presented in three segments: Translating the Bible (pages from historical bibles), Illuminating the Bible (diverse ways scribes and calligraphers have illuminated the biblical text) and Picturing the Bible (artworks in which the biblical text is an integral part of their creations).
MINNESOTA---The public opening for the Cross View Christian Art Festival is February 19, and features the exhibit "Sola Scriptura: Biblical Text and Art." In honor of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Bowden Collections has organized this exhibition that celebrates the remarkable treasure that God has given humanity—the gift of the Bible. In addition to the featured exhibit, the church sponsored festival features a juried exhibit of Christian art in a wide variety of media by regional artists. Get more information and download the Call for Entries brochure at www.crossview.net.  [link]
