VineArts Boise

Next Exhibit

Coming in MARCH 2020 • Entry dates March 15-18



(This exhibit will be on display during Easter.) Think of the greatest love story ever told. What comes to your mind? We’re calling for 2-D and 3-D artworks that explore themes of friendship, sacrifice, kindness, and family, whether based on our own friends or family, people we’ve read about, people who inspire us, people in history, or people in scripture. Jesus said, “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15:13
Ever wonder what real love looks like? Substitute your own name into I Corinthians 13.
