My name is Gregory Disney-Britton, and welcome to the Alpha & Omega Project for Contemporary Religious Arts. Ernest and I started this project in 2008 to provide an essential platform and voice for artists and collectors with religious imagination. The project exists as a website, e-newsletter, tours, annual prize, and a collection of religious-themed works. Our mission/vision is:
  • Mission: We advocate for artists with religious imagination
  • Vision: Art patrons value religion and collect such art once again

We collect contemporary religious-themed paintings, photographs, 3D works, and even dime-store copies of Old Masters. We buy the best pieces our small budget will allow averaging around $200 (although there are a few outliers). Over-time, portraits of Jesus Christ have become our primary focus. On Alpha Omega Arts, we track opportunities around the world, and we occasionally we purchase from those whose personal stories we've come to cherish. Cataloguing the collection below is a work in progress...
