Who will support Catholic artists if not the Catholic community? It is time that these artists rise up in the public eye. It is time for a revival of Catholic art and literature.
In this spirit I present one of my newest discoveries, wonderful Catholic art by talented artists at Trinity Stores : Religious Artwork and Icons. This online store represents Br. Robert Lentz, OFM, Br. Mickey McGrath, OSFS, Julie Lonneman, Lewis Williams, SFO, Dan Paulos, Fr. Bob Gilroy, SJ, Louis Glanzman and Br. Arturo Olivas, SFO. I will feature a few of theses artists this week and next week. Do your self a favour and visit this online store. You will inspired by the talent and quality of these Catholic artists who need our support to continue their work.
Trinity is running a the Crowd Funding Campaign.
I truly believe the Campaign is of interest due to the great Perks we offer such as signed prints and plaques and even original artworks from our 8 artists. Owning a signed or original artwork by artists such as world renowned iconographer Br. Robert Lentz, OFM or Br. Mickey McGrath, OSFS is a once in a lifetime opportunity. It is also a valuable Campaign because of the religious orders we support such as Franciscans and Jesuits and the charities we support such as American Hospice Foundation (AHF) and National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).
I was thrilled with the art I viewed by artists such as Br. Robert Lentz, OFM. His icons are vibrant, unique and imbued with the Presence of God.
- Robert Lentz, OFM : St. Catherine of Siena ,St. Andrew Dung-Lac and Captive Daughter of Zion .
Br. Mickey McGrath, OSFS is a talented, creative artist. His Christ the Teacher is delightful.
Julie Lonneman style is completely her own, simple images convey powerful messages like her Blessed Are The Poor painting
.Lewis Williams, SFO is another prolific iconographer whose work is modern yet faithful to the iconic tradition
