http://www.ncregister.com/site/article/mary-inspires-art-and-life/ The life size icon was commissioned by Dr. Clint Leonard and his wife Kathryn for Morning Star Obstetrics and Gynecology in Gilbert, Arizona. It was painted by Catholic Artist Suzanne Kent Debold. The icon was prayerfully painted for the clinic which is faithful to the magisterium. To me, this is a perfect example of Sacred Art which is good, true and beautiful; it calls the viewer to prayer. The Leonards have many artworks in their clinic and sets a beautiful example of prayer inspired by Catholic Art for clinicians and patrons. The theme of our Catholic Artists Conference on September 12-14, 2016 at St. Benedict Center in Schuyler, Nebraska is prayer. How does the conversation between the artist and God translate into a canvas and call the viewer to prayer. This is the goal of Sacred Art. Our conference features well known professional speakers in five areas of Catholic Art: fine art, sculpture, architecture, music and film. More at www.Catholic-Artists-Conference.com
