Thank you to everyone who prayed for us yesterday. The interview with Stephanie Beecken WAAY TV 31 went great! The Lord continues to open doors for Ascribing Artists to reflect His Glory!
We would like to thank Adrienne Saulsbury, Denise Onwere, Johanna Littleton, and Terri Shows for participating in the interview. You can find their artwork at Lowe Mill Arts on the third floor. Also, Paul LaBathe provided Ascribing Artist background info.

We want to thank Stephanie Beecken for this wonderful opportunity!
Dozens of people in North Alabama are using their God given talents to teach others about faith.
60 Valley artists have come together and formed the group called ‘Ascribing Artists.' They do everything from paint, draw and sculpt all while giving glory to God.
Denise Onwere has been an artist for 5 years.
She's always loved to paint and decided to fulfill her passion and talent full time.
"I know that there are a lot of people out there who have something that God has given them and they should know that and it's okay to say God has given me this and I'm proud of it," said Onwere.
She is not alone.
Paul Labathe is strong in faith and an artist as well. He founded the Ascribing Artists group.
"Basically is comes from Psalm 29:2 which is, ascribe to the Lord the glory of his name," said Labathe.
The artists come from all over North Alabama.
Some have a studio at Lowe Mill in Huntsville.
There is no charge to join.
The group even has a blog with links to the artists' websites.
"The point is to, in the opportunity He's given us, is to show our art and exhibit our art is to try to point others to come and know the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as we do," said Labathe.
The Ascribing Artists display their work in exhibits across North Alabama.
The Artists will have their work on display during two upcoming exhibits.
