I got this email from Fellowship Bible Church of Little Rock today announcing the 7th annual Art Festival:

We are pleased to announce our seventh arts festival! Festival goers and artists are invited to share in creating a very special event with the art gallery, a night of worship, award ceremony and special Sunday services centered around our theme, “Saving Peter A Broken Life Restored.”

Saving Peter A Broken Life Restored

This year’s theme focuses on Peter – the disciple who boldly proclaimed to Jesus that he would never deny Him. And yet, just a short time later, he denied knowing Jesus three times. The range of emotions tell the story of not just Peter but countless others just like him.

Submission Deadline & Demo Day

This Sunday, April 12 we will have a special Demo Day for artists to come and learn more about our theme and gain insight into the arts festival. We hope to see you there! If you or an artist you know would like to be a part of this jurored show, the final day to submit artwork for review is May 20.

Gallery Hours

The gallery will be open to the public June 5-13. At this time you may browse the artwork, meet the artists and even purchase any artwork you like.

 

Friday, June 05, 2015 – Sunday, June 14, 2015

Location: Little Rock Campus, 1401 Kirk Road, Little Rock, AR US 72223
