'The Good Samaritan,' a digital photograph by Christopher Ruane of Murrysville, was among the works displayed in the fourth Nationwide Juried Catholic Arts Competition and Exhibition at Saint Vincent College in 2012. The seventh biennial exhibition opens this fall.

The seventh biennial Nationwide Juried Catholic Arts Competition and Exhibition at Saint Vincent College is accepting submissions through Aug. 3.

The exhibit is held every other year at the Saint Vincent Gallery and attracts entries from all over the world. It was established in 2001 by Benedictine Brother Nathan Cochran, former curator and director of the gallery, as a way to foster the arts of the Western Christian tradition.

This year's juror is Elizabeth Lev, an art historian who specializes in Christian art and architecture, Baroque painting and sculpture, and High Renaissance art. She is professor of art and architecture for the Italian campuses of Christendom College and Duquesne University.

Subjects sought include scenes from the life, passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ; other biblical scenes, stories and characters; depictions of saints and their lives; current and historical events in the life of the Catholic Church; depictions of the seven sacraments; and personifications of the corporal works of mercy.

Prizes are $1,000 for best of show, $750 for second place, $500 for third place and $250 each for four juror mentions.

The prize reception will be held on Oct. 28, and the exhibit will run from Oct. 30 to Dec. 2.

The gallery is located on the third floor of the Robert S. Carey Student Center at Saint Vincent College, Unity.

Other subject restrictions and guidelines can be found at gallery.stvincent.edu/upcoming_exhibitions .

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
