Biblical Art Gallery in Texas

I deemed this to be fitting seeing that we are coming up on good Friday and that Sunday afterall is Easter.  After looking up the daily news on Art I saw something that caught my eye…

In Dallas Texas a former Christian Art gallery is opening thier doors on Good Friday after having to shut their doors in 2005, from a devastating fire.

Before the Fire in 2005

Biblical Arts Center in Dallas, Texas,  decorated with painting, sculptures, biblical archaeology, and religious architecture has now added on 6,000 square feetto their gallery, from their prior 3000 and opened the doors to African-American, European, Hispanic, Israeli and Jewish art.

So all ya’ll in Texas, where my Daddy was raised, go and check it out this weekend!!! I wish I could be there… I love that they are making it available to other cultures artwork and artifacts. We see a lot of different artifacts from Ancient Egypt and little from Asia and South America, However, it usually is not biblical based. This will be a fun event for families all religions and cultural backgrounds… Bravo! to these individuals who are opening minds and lives… Keeping out religion and beliefs in the world of Art, holds us back by not appreciating other peoples lives and community… We are inundated with crazy  “Christians” causing strife for other Christ followers and giving them a bad name…  Well done  at making Christ Followers look good once more. Bravo! once more.

Love,

Julia
