Show Statement
“Christian artists today exist at a point of friction between the secular zeitgeist on one hand, and ancient faith on the other. This situation is either threatening or a tremendous opportunity, depending on how we chose to view it. Artists, more so than other Christians, are practiced at the art of discovering and articulating truth in a world whose foundation is in constant flux. With this in mind, I look forward to seeing how Christian artists are addressing the world of today and tomorrow.” – Kevin Buist
