This online list connects patrons to the artists who are leading a New Catholic Renaissance of fine art and music.
For many Catholics, seeing the great cathedrals and beautiful sacred art of Europe strengthens their faith and inspires them anew with a reminder that the Church itself is a reflection of the Truth and Beauty of God. Sadly, it is rare that their own churches, often built in the last 50 years, at a time when traditional forms of sacred art were considered by some to be out-of-date, do much to stir the soul in this way.
At last, after decades of beige churches and contemporary Christian music, there is a movement afoot among Catholic artists to bring back beauty to sacred art. Painter Gwyneth Thompson-Briggs is doing her part to further this Renaissance in traditional Catholic sacred art with the establishment of a “Catholic Artists Directory” to help connect patrons of the sacred arts with artists committed to reviving the traditions of Western art.
