RELIGIOUS ART | NEWS OF WEEK

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Gregory & Ernest Disney-Britton
"God is in the House" by Mikaela Castledine, winner of the Mandorla Art Award.
There are few major prizes for contemporary religious art, but we think the biggest is the Mandorla Art Award in Australia. This week, our art of the week is the 2018 winner of the $25,000 award– “God is in the House” by Mikaela Castledine. The theme for this year’s bi-annual competition is “A new heaven and a new earth” taken from Rev. 21:1-2. The Australian artist created a “sacred city” of ready-made glass objects and ceramic towers. It also has turrets topped with crochet domes. We modeled our far more modest award, Alpha Omega Prize after this award, and we invite you to sign-up today to vote this Fall for the 2018 winner
