Celebration of the Eucharist

Holy Name Catholic Church is inviting 2D artists from around the country to participate in a highly reverent display of art featuring the Most Blessed Sacrament, The Eucharist. Catholic artists are highly encouraged to participate, but all artists, regardless of religion, are welcome to submit art.

Artwork can be any representation (realism or abstract) of the Holy Eucharist. The artwork must be respectful, as the Eucharist is the true Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. Creativity is a plus!

Our art show will open just days before the Eucharistic Procession reaches Steamboat Springs, in Colorado on June 4-5, 2024.

See the route here.

From our Pacific coast, the western arm of the Pilgrimage will cross the Rocky Mountains and Great Plains on foot. The Junipero Serra Route will be the longest and most challenging branch of the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage—covering over 2,200 miles!

Application Requirements

The deadline for submission is Tuesday, April 30, 2024; Artists will be notified of their status via email by Thursday, May 4-8th, 2024. If your work is selected, it must arrive presentation ready (framed and with appropriate installation materials).

Shipped work must be received by Friday, May 24, 2024, in reusable packaging with a prepaid label for return shipping. (In-person drop-off will be held on Wednesday, May 22, 2024, 10-5 pm. All hand delivered work must be received at the Holy Name Catholic Church Office at 504 Oak Street, Steamboat Springs, by 5 pm on Wednesday, May 22, 2024).

Opening reception Saturday, June 1st, 2024!! Work must remain on exhibit through Sunday, June 29th. From there, selected artists may must arrange for work to be picked up on Monday, July 1st. Any shipped work will be returned the following week. Return shipping will be at the artist expense.
