-Click on the "join this group" button on our main page, and tell us a little bit about yourself and your work and why you feel it fits with our group.
-When we receive your join request, an administrator will accept or reject it. We will send you a note to articulate our decision. Submitting Art:
-Submissions are only accepted from members. Please join first. If you would like to suggest the work of another artist you can do this through our Favorites gallery.
-Click on the "Gallery" tab on our main page. Open the part of our gallery to which you would like to submit a particular piece, and then click the button "Contribute to this Gallery" at the top.
-You will need to select the folder you are submitting to which if you are a member the folder will be the "Members" folder. If you are a contributor then you will select the folder with your deviantART Name on it.
-The "Collaborations" folder is only for works that are a collaboration between two or more artists.- The sacred art concept should be obvious in the work itself or the artist should clarify the concept of the piece in their artist comments.
-When we receive your submission, an administrator will accept or reject it and will also comment on the submission itself why they chose to accept or decline the submission.Other Ways to contribute to the group:
-Because we would like to see a sense of community and here and not just another group to "showcase" art we encourage the thoughts of the artist about their work, and hope to have open discussions within our community. Your thoughts can give the viewer a new perspective they may not have considered before and may not have seen otherwise.
-We also encourage all members, and contributors to actively participate with the group. Through communication and joint projects such as collaborative works we can all learn from each other and expand ourselves and our understandings on a personal level but also the collective understanding of all.
-We now have a group chatroom: Sacred-Art Chat [link]
-Contributors are encouraged to write blogs, and we will soon have member interviews and a regular group newsletter we will be putting out.
-We are open to any suggestions or other ideas any of you may have. Please feel free to note the group. "Sacred art is imagery intended to uplift the mind to the spiritual. It can be an object to be venerated not for what it is but for what it represents; it symbolizes understanding and feelings that words simply can't describe. Attunement to the beautiful is one of the most important methods of spiritual work, because it contributes to the refinement of the consciousness. Creator is the most subtle form of Consciousness in the universe. Thus, on the way to transcendence, spiritual seekers have to refine themselves as consciousnesses. One can refine the consciousnesses by cultivating subtle positive emotions and refusing coarse ones. The attunement to the most subtle phenomena of living nature and to sublime works of art can be of great help of this Path."
Sacred art is a uniquely effective vehicle for identifying resonances among religious and spiritual traditions throughout the world, identifying commonalities that lead to an integrative understanding of humanity and world sacred art.
is founded on the concept of modern sacred art that explores the heart, mind and spirit of the world's sacred art traditions...
Who we are: We are artists that seek to reclaim the practices and traditions of sacred art as a tool for supporting connection, spiritual growth, and healing, in re-establishing the traditional connection between sacred art and inner work (prayer and meditation, visualization, and other forms of spiritual practice).
