Erik Schurink, Art Gallery Director


Art Gallery Director

Each year the community celebrates the myriad of visual arts and the artists of the community at the Great Mother and New Father Conference Gallery Opening. Erik Schurink is an exhibit designer, media mixer, salon host, and curator. He will direct the art gallery experience, and guide exploration of parallels between disparate artworks and art forms to inform discourse.


Call to Artists

The theme of The Great Mother and New Father Conference this year is Searching for the Blue Feather. This theme and the tales and stories chosen to lead and accompany us on this journey are rich with inspiration for creative minds.

It is our hope that you will be inspired to create and share imagery based on this theme and the potential woven into this beautifully crafted gathering.

The conference gallery space provides an opportunity to share your theme-inspired work; however, it is not a requirement that your work be related to this theme.


Whether you are a new or returning gallery artist, complete the Gallery Submission form to share your intent to participate this year. If you are a first time participant, please be sure to include jpgs of the type of work you hope to have in the show or a link to your website or portfolio. Both 2 and 3 dimensional work is welcome and we will do our best to accommodate each artist’s vision for presentation. For more information, email Erik Schurink, Art Gallery Director.
