Know an LDS Artist?

For those who don't know what LDS is, that's the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as Mormons).   This is not an official church site, it was created and is run by Tom Wheeler.

This site grew out of the LDS Visual Arts Facebook group. We've had some great discussion there about the gospel and the arts.   We wanted a kind of LDS Artist directory - a place to share our websites and see what others were doing.  Being a web developer as well as an artist, I thought I would throw this together.  

We would love this to grow, if you know of any LDS visual artists out there, please let them know about this site and encourage them to register!  We're interested in all kinds of LDS visual artists, no matter what sort of art they are doing (doesn't just need to be "Mormon" art).

Obviously we want to keep this clean, so any objectionable work will be removed.  Anyone can join, as long as they are over 18 and are an LDS artist.  I know there's some wonderful young artists out there who are very talented, but I'd like to just keep this to grown-ups.  Please join when you turn 18.  Also, I know that of course there are wonderful artists in all faiths (and non-faith), but this site is just for showcasing LDS artists because we're interested in finding out where they are and what they are doing.  That said, we certainly aren't going to try to verify that people are what they say they are, but if it's clear from the content that you post that you don't match up to these criteria, your account will be blocked.

I guess the last thing I want to say is, we're interested in people who consider themselves serious artists (and at least somewhat serious Latter-day Saints).  If your genre is stick figures, or you just became an artist five minutes ago, you might find yourself mysteriously removed.  That's about the extent of the jurying we'll probably do..

Oh and, if you see problems or glitches on the site, let me know & I'll get to them when I can.  This is a volunteer effort (and a work in progress).
