DISCOVERY ART FALL 2017 ART SHOW – Metaphors of God,

October 15 – 31.

Deadline to submit artwork – October 2

Discovery Church

 met·a·phor  met-uh-fawr, -fer :  A figure of speech in which a word or phrase literally denoting one kind of object or idea is used in place of another to suggest a likeness or analogy between them, figurative language.  Also, an image which suggests similarities between two different ideas, without implying that they are identical.


From Genesis to Revelation, metaphors are used in the Bible to help us better relate to kingdom principles. (Examples: Jesus is the light of the world; God is our rock and our fortress, etc.)

 The theme of Discovery Art’s fall art show is Metaphors of God.  Prayerfully select an example of a metaphor from the Bible, then create an original piece of art representing the analogy or how it has impacted your life. See link below for more metaphor examples.

 There is no age limit and all levels of proficiency from professional to novice are welcome.  Entries can be 2 or 3 dimensional pieces in a variety of material including but not limited to paintings, photographs, textile, wood, metal, glass and ceramics (finished size no larger than 16” X 20”).  Submit up to 2 pieces for consideration.  Selections may be limited due to space constraints. The exhibit will be displayed in the church entry foyer.  Show opens Sunday, Oct, 15 and runs through 31.  Deadline for entries is Monday, Oct 2.  Entry packets available in the foyer or download from links below.  Contact the church office with questions or for more details, 345-6776.
