Grand Opening March 15, 2018 – April 15, 2018 “Votive”

Votives are interfaith tools of utility and intent, providing light and warmth upon illumination.  A votive offering may be offered or consecrated in fulfillment of a vow. For what purposes are we burning our candles? What are our secret prayers of intent? How does our faith and spirituality pay reverence to idols, statutes, gods, and the sacred? Can a votive be more than a candle, can it be a state of being?

Sacrosanct Gallery: Sacred Art in Contemporary America was formerly a liturgical art advisory known as The Art Evangelist.  We’ve been growing and changing in ways that are just phenomenal, including a recent relocation from Southwest Florida to Central Connecticut.  So it stands too, that our interests and direction are naturally morphing as we cultivate our passion and draw nearer to what is true, especially now that we are in the Northeast Corridor with much greater access to pivotal metropolitan art centers.
