Christians in the Arts

My wife and I have been discussing this topic for several years. We're recently back to it en force as we try to map out what's next for our family. I hope to be posting more on this topic soon, but for now, here's a link dump of some recent sites I've found:

Along with these more national and international efforts, action is being taken in the Upstate of South Carolina as well:
  • Silver Chair Books - a local book store in Greer, SC is hosting a Christian in the Arts discussion group in the next few weeks.
  • Another group is going to be hosting an presentation on the Transforming Culture symposium this Friday night at Snapshot Café and Art Bar. Details provided by the organizer are below:
    • Where: Snapshot Café and Art Bar
      110 Poinsett Hwy at Rutherford Rd.
      Greenville, SC
    • When: Friday, May 2, 6-7 PM
    • Who: Any Christian in the visual arts. Bring a friend!
    • RSVP: stgeorgeapa [at] bellsouth [dot] net

Thanks for posting all this Ben. You probably heard for someone yesterday regarding this. I told him you had connections and a big interest in this area. If my schedule allows I will probably go to the gathering at Snap Shot.

Any more info on this since April? I'm fed up with the general "anti-God" feeling I get from UVA and will not be joining again next year. I'm trying to find out if there is a similar organization in the upstate for Christian artists, where bringing glory to God through artwork would be celebrated instead of scorned. I am a fine arts photographer and my company motto is "Celebrating God's Creation". Please let me know if you know of such an organization.
