Advent in Art

Series of articles exploring the nativity in Western art.I’m excited to invite you to participate in Advent in Art

Reawaken the wonder and beauty of the Christmas story as we explore 25 masterpieces.

For the first 25 days in December we will explore 500 years of art dedicated to the nativity. Rich with imagery, the story of the incarnation is made visible. Artists have gifted us with paintings and sculptures that draw us into the wonder of the Christmas story and the beauty of God’s love for His creation.

I’ve included at the end of this post a list of the artists that will be included in this series. If you would like to get the link to begin the journey on Dec. 1 just subscribe to my email list or go to the Start Here page and click on the Advent in Art banner.

The tour is free, and I hope, a welcome addition to your celebration of the Advent season.
