Exhibit about pilgrimage

Bring on your ideas and questions for this first ever exhibition of pilgrim-inspired art!!

A variety of interpretations of the pilgrimage are encouraged.

What does the word “pilgrimage” mean to you?

A spiritual quest to a sacred site? A chance to honour a saint, god or hero? Slow, mindful travel? A penitential or redemptive journey? A difficult journey? Your life or the life of someone you know?

However you define it, walking “the way” can often lead to moments that evoke awe, wonder and hope in our hearts. Or as Salman Rushdie puts it, a moment which allows us “to glimpse an eff of the ineffable.”

It is these moments that inspire us to record or commemorate it in some way: through photography, video, song, poetry, prose, painting, sketching, quilting, collage, sculpture or whatever expressive media is available to us.

Imagining a platform for people to share those “gifted moments” of the pilgrim with others is the inspiration for The Travelling Eye in Your Pilgrimage—a multi-media exhibition of photo images, art, video and writings—at Studio A, 7330 Second St. in Grand Forks, Oct. 23 – Nov. 6..

All residents of the Boundary are invited to be part of this exhibit by submitting their work by the deadline of Sept. 20.

We encourage a variety of entries and interpretations of the “pilgrimage”– submissions of any pilgrimage, any belief and any medium are welcome!

The exhibition will be professionally curated, and as the studio can only accommodate up to 40 images, it is advisable to submit your entries as soon as possible. To “pass muster” at the submission stage, minimum image size of any photo will need to be 5×7”, and all art or writing need to be in final stages of completion. More information for submitters can be obtained by emailing jkathleen@shaw.ca, or kflagel@shaw.ca.
