This group is here specifically to share Catholic religious artwork with the fine art world. To make the stories of the bible, the saints, and even compatible stories from other faith practices approachable and accessible to both practicing Catholics and people who struggle with the practice of religion, but have a heart for good and God.
If you are on Twitter look for our featured artwork with the hashtag -- #CatholicArtGallery -- also, for both Artists and Visitors to the group please visit the various group tabs and discussions hosted by the group as well as the image gallery.
The 20 most current works per member will remain in the group. The older works (above 20 per member) will be purged as your new works are added. Also, artwork that is 1 year or older will be removed. Members are then asked to rotate artwork. Remove one and add another as you create new artwork. The goal of this guideline is to keep our gallery interesting and up to date. This group will try to feature 1 artwork from each group member around the 15th of the month, especially when it uses the ‘catholic’ keyword, however only feature your new works from the previous 30 days, so please keep your wonderful artwork moving ==== but only 2 PER DAY, please! ==== artists who repeatedly ignore the rules will sadly have to be removed from this group.
Catholic Art can be that thing that bridges the gap between understanding and not. We seek artwork that deepen ones understanding of the great mysteries of God and to provide images that will bring the viewers mind back to God. Whether it is a statue, stained glass window, painting or humanities; Catholic art conveys a dimension of Christianity that words strain to impart. However, anything that goes against the Catholic church\'s teachings/doctrine/dogma, or is clearly anti-Catholic, will not be allowed.
Thank you so much for sharing your artistic vision and the beauty of our Lord's Church with the world!
