In this case, art that is created, produced and sold by Christians. Although open to artists of all faiths, Christians in particular seem to have some challenges.[youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0LDhwamYpU’] One challenge is being an artist expressing through a faith based filter and to be accepted by liberal gallery owners and curators.Â The other lingering issue for a project named “JAR” is the problem of having artists who are not of Christian faith, come a be a part of “JAR”.
