Art collectors, especially people of faith, want to know the inspiration for truly imaginative works of religious art. Are you willing to share yours? This is your chance! The process is simple: Answer seven questions (25-50 words each) and send images as illustration of those answers. You will then be added to the "A&O Artists" roster of American Spiritual/Religious Artists; and be profiled as the INSPIRE ME! Artist of the Month with a permanent link direct to your website site via this profile. We will also track religious news stories about you, and your artwork to include them on the blogsite connected to this profile. Lastly, you will be added to our list of Advisory Board members who nominate candidates for the annual A&O Prize for Contemporary Religious Arts.
Interested? Here's the format:
- What is your faith tradition, and how does it impact your art?
- Describe your artwork. What style or genre is it?
- Have you ever had to defend exploring religious ideas?
- Who collects your work, and why?
- What "risks" have you taken in creating your work?
- What other artists have influenced your work?
- How can A&O readers collect/experience your work?
PS. Adding a head shot in your studio helps A&O believers make that personal connection too. If you forget, I will follow-up to make the ask.
