The Power of Creating a Series of Artwork

Jeanne Harris Weaver, Curator

ECVA is proud to announce its next exhibition to appear in April 2023. We are asking artists to submit a series of cohesive pieces of art with a total of five to seven works.

The image above is a series of five boats which Jeanne Weaver, the Curator, observed while living for a short period of time in Bangladesh. The series of five is part of a larger series called “Living in Bangladesh”.

First, what is a series? It is not a triptych or a polyptych. Both are fine but their purpose is not the same as a series of artwork.

A series tugs at your heart. Inspiration and passion are essential if it is to be powerful. And a series must be powerful. It must be something so meaningful to you that you are willing to spend the time and inner energy to create it. It must communicate your passion to the viewer. You are doing work for God’s Glory. The subject matter is countless.

A series is a cohesive body of work for which each piece has common threads which connect all the pieces together. Those common threads may take place in many different ways: palette, size, shape, subject, composition, theme or subject matter, subject created in different mediums, and presentation. A series consists of at least 5 pieces of work.

A few other examples of art series would be Andy Warhol’s Campbell Soup or Jackie Kennedy; Monet’s Haystack series; Rouen Cathedral showing the difference in the light; Degas’ Ballerinas; or Jacob Lawrence’s 60 panels Migration Series. In addition there are many series of the Stations of the Cross and other Christian events or topics.
