"I'll contribute a little more. Since it was brought up... there are a number of painters and sculptors that show faith based works. One I know of in particular is an excellent painter in Florida. She gets into the best shows and wins awards.…"

"Honest answer: it would be the same as someone’s art with quotes about Donald Trump, or any other form of propaganda and I would bet a penny that 99% of show directors are going to reject your booth. They can find a dozen other digital…"
