Headed to the Paris Temple…

The Zion Art Society provides us with a great opportunity for us to build relationships with talented artists from diverse backgrounds. We feature artists at all points of the spectrum from gifted hobbyists to talented, professionals. Relatively few original oil paintings currently hang in LDS temples around the world. For many artists, having a work hanging in the temple is one of the most rewarding experiences.

Recently, we learned that one of our first artists, Mary Sauer, had her work, About My Father’s Business accepted into the Paris Temple. We were able to bring this painting with us to the first Zion Art Salon in Laguna Beach earlier this year and now, we are thrilled to see it on its way to Paris.

Months of work went into this painting. Mary was kind enough to offer a color study for the final work to members of the Zion Art Society. It is an opportunity to own a piece of art from a contemporary LDS artists or to start your collection. This connection to the new Paris temple is not only inspiring but offers a great conversation piece and an affordable, smaller scale addition to your collection.
