STATIONS OF THE CROSS 2020 & 2022
Each Lenten season, artists from our community paint their personal interpretation of each Station of the Cross. The artwork ranges in style and is deeply personal. In the beginning of Spring, we meet for an Artist’s dinner and a chance to hear how each person created their own work. After the dinner, the work is hung in the Sanctuary and stays until Summer.
Since these works were never hung in the church, we are rebooting 2020’s stations for 2022.
This is a unique way to experience Lent and gives viewers a personal view of the stations. After they are hung, visitors are invited to walk the stations and hear the explanations to aid in an understanding of Jesus’ story.
The size of the stations should be 24” X 30” preferably in the vertical (portrait) orientation, but we can handle landscape orientation.
In addition to the artwork each artist should write a short (1 to 3 paragraph) blurb about their painting. It should tell what the station means to you, why you chose the station, what you learned from it or anything else of importance.
Each artist should frame or otherwise prepare the art work for hanging. St. Partrick’s will take care of adding the wire and hanging the art work.
Questions should be directed to Diane Rankin (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Norman Thomas (email@example.com).
