RELIGIOUS ART | NEWS OF WEEK -- Collecting Ben Smith

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
Ernest Disney-Britton, at home in den with "Madonna" (1966) by Ben Smith, woodblock print
RBG, Fonseca, and the Conch Republic. Because of them, we'll be selling art to raise money for the Biden-Harris campaign. The passing of RBG, our friend 
Bryan Fonseca from Covid-19, and the loss of our third potential Key West vacation-home, inspired us to sell off the artworks in storage beginning next Sunday. There are bigger initiatives, but our focus will be on the art of the religious imagination with artists like Atlanta's Ben Smith. Where your treasure is, there your heart is also, so using your artistic treasures to advance equality is our tip of the week.
Are you an artist? Are you a collector? If you like what you see each week, please invite a friend to subscribe to our periodic e-newsletter. You can also follow us weekly on TwitterFacebook, or Soundcloud but only subscribers can vote for the Alpha Omega Prize. It is our annual recognition each November 1st of one artist's impact on religious dialogue in America.
