This is a group for Christian and Prophetic Artists to share their works that they would be willing to ship to exhibits. What I envision is creating a \'bank\' of artists that pastors can choose from who can curate their own exhibits for teaching purposes, or simply want to have visual art hanging in their building to inspire.Images should be original expressing faith,praise devotion and other Christian or Prophetic expressions. I don't want photographs of nature with scripture typed in in photoshop. If the scripture is handwritten I'll take it because it is from your hand .I'm also not looking for photographs of Master's works including sculptures or statues. If you incorporate the image into a digital work that is changed or used as part of a composite that's fine. Or if you take a photo at a unique angle and lighting, then you've shown us something new. I'm also not looking for the same image slightly different because you've changed the color in photoshop. Like the same candle in all the colors of the rainbow--one is sufficient.
What I would need from you are email addresses from congregations in your area that may be interested. Then we can approach them. I'm still in the thinking process on this so any input would be appreciated. This is a participatory group. Please think about possibilities of exhibitions in your area and let me know.
UNITED CHRISTIAN ARTISTS REVOLVING EXHIBITIONS(UCARE) AND
ARTISTS WHO EVANGELIZE (AWE)
WE are set apart by being non-elitist
We are unified by the desire to glorify God and be master apprentices to the master creator. Our intent is to set aside ourselves to be an instrument of the Lord. We strive for quality through faith, obedience, practice, prayer, worship and devotion to the Holy scriptures. We seek to strengthen our relationship with Christ and dive more deeply into Him. In relationship to Him we hope to express through our artistic medium the sacred; that has the power to heal, transform and inspire the viewer. May we be a “beacon of light in dark places” in any way we can. Whether the beacon shines in the dark places of our selves and our own lives or in the lives of others. This includes encouraging fellow artists to constantly excel in their craft, so that we become master crafts people. We press toward the mark of the High Calling in Christ Jesus, humbly submitting to Yaweh. For we set our mind on divine things not human things and thus bring heaven to earth.

I'm also going to add the CIVA network photo page in the event that we do actually attract pastors, we'll have the resource.
