This show highlights several gilded encaustic panels that recall many iconic paintings from our Christian heritage.

Forty encaustic gilded panels and forty black panels that are incised with text, become 40 Days/40 Nights. The black panels are inscribed with the text from John 1, "The light shines in the darkness…Find out more »

When we launched Eden Collective in 2020, we chose the theme “Conception,” partly to celebrate the beginning of both the collection and the guild. The other part was to give voice to a year that, for better or worse or both, disrupted the normal narrative of our…Find out more »
Hannah Robinett's grids are patient works of observation: a careful reading and documentation of sacred texts with implications in modern life.

The concept of an “illustrated Bible” conjures, for some, soft-focused feathery-winged angels, perfect pairs of well-behaved animals peeking out the ark’s windows, or baby Jesus snuggled into his pint-sized Jenny Lind manger. These cozy images often belie the earthy realism of the Bible’s contents. Revealed shows the Bible in all its raw, violent, and beautiful glory. As J. Mark Bertrand attests, “Revealed sets out to crush any notion that the Bible is a safe, inspirational read. Instead the artwork here . . .…Find out more »

Beauty, Truth, and Goodness Contemplating the Transcendent Divine Beauty is compelling. It binds itself to the Truth and the Good in such a way that, as Dante said, “Beauty awakens the soul to act.” It moves us from the rooted realities of canvas, clay, notes, or language into the transcendental nature of God Himself, our Beautiful, True, and Good Creator. Join CIVA, Christians in the Visual Arts as artists, pastors, curators, and cultural leaders explore the divine spark of the image of God in…Find out more »
