Register now for the 2023 LCANZ Simultaneous Art Exhibition and begin planning with your congregation, school or aged-care home to host an exhibition in your local community under the event theme ‘Come to the Banquet’. Registrations close on 30 May with events able to be staged in August this year.

Organiser Libby Krahling says this year’s theme offers ‘a rich opportunity to explore the many passages in the Bible connected to food and feasting and celebrate the great banquet of Holy Communion and the wedding feast awaiting us in eternity’. ‘Groups might also like to brainstorm ways of incorporating hospitality into their exhibitions’, she says.


Artists using any media and with any level of experience are encouraged to explore the theme, using resources developed by LCA Visual Arts. These include a devotion, suggested Bible passages for study and a range of activity ideas suitable for workshops or individual use.

Register today and access resource packs, poster templates and information on hosting an art exhibition on the Visual Arts website at or email
