Gregory Disney-Britton, and welcome to the Alpha & Omega Project for Contemporary Religious Arts. Ernest and I started this project in 2008 when we were living in New York City. Today, our project includes an art news website, e-newsletter, an annual artist prize (see below), and both a summer and winter tour. We collect contemporary religious-themed paintings, photographs, 3D works, and even dime-store copies of Old Masters. A few favorites from our collection are: Anila Quayyum Agha, Barnaby Barford, Niccolo Cosme, and Salvador Dali.
