The Christian Artist and the Church

by Anna Blanch on July 18, 2010

Over at Transpositions there has been a series of exceptionally thoughtful and thought-provoking posts about the role of the Christian Artist which have raised some questions about the nature of both “Christian art” and the artist’s sense of membership with the church.

I commend the following posts to you.

In The Burden of Autonomy, Sara Schumacher discusses what happens when a client says “do whatever you want.”

Jenn Craft’s post,  Christianity, Creation, and Art  along with her two-part series titled Where Does our Service Lie?: The Christian Artist and the Church (Part 1) and Where does our service lie?: The Christian Artist and the Church (Part 2)  explore what it means to be a Christian artist.

Anna M Blanch is founder of Goannatree, and a PhD candidate in the Institute of Theology, Imagination, and the Arts, University of St Andrews. She posts weekly over at Transpositions, a blog on Theology, Imagination, and the Arts.
