The Angelico Catholic Arts Guild’s mission is

to enrich the faith and work of artists;

to nurture a taste for Goodness, a longing for Truth, and a love of Beauty;

to deepen the artist’s relationship with the Creator;

to build networks of artists in friendships, collaborations, and mentorships.

The goal of this exhibition is to showcase excellent fine art works produced by artists in the greater Cincinnati Region that are a visual exploration of invisible realities e.g., love, hope, the Creator’s imagination, etc, and of the created world; artwork that moves the viewer to prayer.

Submitted Artwork does not need to be of a religious nature but should evidence elements of Goodness, Truth, and Beauty; witness to the dignity of the human person; attest to the reality of the spiritual life; and demonstrate mastery of the artist’s medium.

Twenty-first Century Catholic art will be a new reflection of Beauty ever ancient, ever new!   It must be excellent in concept and craft.

Eligibility: The Angelico Catholic Arts Guild welcomes all Artists, Catholic and non-Catholic. All people of good will are welcome. 

This exhibition is open to any artist over the age of 18, professional or amateur.  Artists must reside in the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky region.  All entries must be original, by the submitting artist.  Limit three entries per artist. Work may be for sale or not-for-sale (NFS).

The focus of the jurying process will be on excellence in concept, technique, and expression; work that will inspire and move the heart and mind toward God.

Juror: This exhibition will be selected by Cecelia Dorger, Ph.D., Art Historian and Professor of Art History at Mt. St. Joseph University and at the Athenaeum of Ohio.  Dr Dorger presents the dynamic Lunch with the Lord Lecture Series at St Peter in Chains Cathedral.  She specializes in sacred art, especially images of the Virgin Mary, and teaches the use of sacred art to facilitate prayer, Visio Divina.
