Welcome to the first ever Salvos Online Art Exhibition
- we're excited you are here!
While Covid-19 has affected how we operate individually and as a Christian movement, its impact has also bred opportunity: maximizing virtual connections, rethinking former frameworks and sparking new ideas. From this challenging yet creative mix has emerged this Online Art Exhibition.
All artisans are invited to participate.
Professional, hobbyist, experienced or beginner - whether you work or play as an artist (or somewhere between), we encourage you to get involved. We also welcome various styles and media. Whether you work in paints, ink, digital media, clay, stone, wood, or textiles - if you create art, this is the place for you.
Share your interpretation of mission.
Create a work inspired by one of the Salvo Mission Intentions described below, and submit it for exhibition. Expressions of interest are now open! A gallery of participant artworks will be collated and displayed on this site, 29 April – 13 May.
Above all, this exhibition seeks to glorify Jesus.
For all artists, we hope this exhibition will invigorate your passion for the arts and for mission. We also pray that you will encounter Jesus as you explore ideas, as you create your work, and as you experience the work of others. He is the one we adore, our ultimate source of inspiration - and indeed the best Artist we know. For all who will enjoy viewing the gallery, we pray that you will be encouraged by the creativity and variety available to us in worshipping our Saviour Jesus and sharing his love with others.

OUR PRAYER FOR YOU -
We pray that every artist who engages in this exhibition will have fresh revelations of God’s love and calling on their life. We pray that you would know that you are loved and valued and your gifting is a blessing to our church.
For everyone who views the gallery, we pray that you will be inspired to live out God’s calling on their life and be challenged as to what it means to be The Salvation Army in 2021.
We pray God will bless you abundantly!
