Christian Art is a type of art that encompasses the various aspects of Christianity. The unifying theme that runs across the paintings is the representation of the life of Jesus Christ and the social scenario prevalent during those times. Some paintings depict scenes or events from the Old Testament or saints. There are many successful Christian artists today. Due to their emergence, various companies have set up Christian Art Galleries; most of these galleries are online galleries. Few of the well known galleries of Christian art are;
John Bell's Christian Art Gallery:
The gallery has many original and distinctive images that are free to be used for personal, evangelistic, church or non-commercial purposes. The paintings are divided into several unorthodox categories like “Accusing God”, “Desiring God”, “Global Trouble”, “God's Judgment, lest we forget”, “Giving Glory to God, in spite of myself”, “Praise, I'm in the mood” and “In need of help, we don't know what to do”. This is an online Christian Art gallery, like most other Christian Art galleries.
The Christ-Centered Art was established in 1998. It is also an online Christian Art Gallery which deals with art prints related to Christianity. The art works on display in the website depict Biblical themes, traditional family values and other divine creations.
The mission of the Christ-Centered Art gallery is to serve the site visitors. Their motto is “Beacon of Light”. Some of the artists featured on this site are, Harry Anderson, Jesse Barnes, Thomas Blackshear, James Coleman, Jim Daly, Simon Dewey, Sandra Kuck, Liz Lemon Swindle and Greg Olsen. The gallery also sells paintings. Out of every dollar spent for a painting, ten cents are donated to the Christian ministries who preach the gospel in all corners of the earth.
Apart from these two galleries, there are several other smaller Christian art galleries which display, buy and sell paintings on Christian Art.
