About Art for God’s Sake
•
•
•
Art for God’s Sake (AFGS) is a juried, professional art show that highlights sacred
themes. The three-day, multi-faceted exhibition includes an elegant opening-night
gala, interactive art demos, and educational opportunities. It also showcases the
non-juried artwork of well-known artists and local clergy
The inspiring art celebration, a rarity in the Archdiocese of Detroit, will be presented
May 3-5, 2013 on the campus of St. Anastasia Roman Catholic Church in Troy,
Michigan
Inspired by the Holy Spirit, Fr. J.J. Mech, Pastor at St. Anastasia Roman Catholic
Church in Troy, MI, created Art for God’s Sake with the basic goal of bringing any and
all people together, and with art, presenting an opportunity to pray and to get to
know the Lord. His hope is to bring this art show to the community and to allow us
to immerse ourselves in the many ways that God can reach out to us through art. Fr.
Mech believes that Art For God’s Sake is an uplifting declaration and reminder that
even when times are troubled, the Catholic Church protects and honors the
masterful beauty expressed to us by talented artists who are blessed with a measure
of the Lord’s creativity
•
Prior to earning his degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and his Master of Divinity at
Sacred Heart Seminary, Fr. Mech attended Michigan State University where he
enrolled in an art history course providing him with his first opportunity to examine
art. He noticed that the Church inspired the majority of the art studied
•
Fr. Mech and the AFGS committee would like attendees to be inspired with the
transcendent beauty of the art and to walk away feeling uplifted and with a different
understanding of the Lord

About Art for God’s Sake
•
•
•
Art for God’s Sake also strives to support artists. A poster contest, high school art
show, and juried art show will give artists the opportunity to become eligible for
prizes
The AFGS poster contest will afford the winner an opportunity for his or her artwork
to be used in advertising and promoting the event, an addition to one’s portfolio,
and also a $100 prize
During this challenging economy, arts programs often get cut. The committee is
tying in with local schools to involve student artists in its high school art show. The
purpose of AFGS is not only to display art, but for it to be utilized as a catechetical
tool
•
Work from jury-selected clergy artists and other artists will also be publicized in a
catalog that will be distributed to AFGS attendees
•
Art for God’s Sake is just that. It is art for the sake of God; it can draw us to know
Him more fully. Scripture is beautiful poetry and the Holy Spirit can significantly
move us. It is an opportunity to celebrate our history and be lifted up. Fr. Mech
would like the community to be drawn in, to be inspired and really understand the
art, and thus gain a better understanding of who created us

Our 2013 motif is the sunflower. We relate to St.
John’s work, Iliotropion, which is the Greek
word for helianthus (sunflower)
•
For St. John, the sunflower was analogous to the
agreement of the human will with the will of
God. Daily, the sunflower turns its face from
one side to the other, following the movement
of the sun, much like our turning to God
•
Iliotropion, in fact, looks at the Divine and
human wills: "The only true means for attaining
our happiness in this life and in the next is the
constant turning of our attention within
ourselves, to our own conscience, to our
thoughts, words, and deeds, so as to raise them
to passionlessness: this will reveal to us our
mistakes in life and indicate the only path to
salvation. This path is the entire devotion of our
whole being, of our whole self with all the
circumstances of our life, to the will of God. As
a symbol of this our turning to God we may
take the growth of the sunflower; let it be ever
before our eyes”

•
Fr. Mech transferred to Sacred Heart Major Seminary
and continued to pursue this passion by working with
watercolors and eventually being hired by area
churches to design and create their Paschal
Candles. He also created the Seminary’s welcome
banner for Pope John Paul II’s visit to Detroit
•
Fr. Mech was inspired by the abundance of Pewabic
Tile on campus. His own low-relief tile work includes a
fiftieth anniversary limited edition piece for Our Lady
of Loretto, where he also created the stone-and-wood
presider’s chair and the tiles for the side-altar shrine
to the Blessed Virgin
•
Fr. J.J. Mech grew up in Dearborn Heights, MI. He
attended Catholic schools for 12 years before going
to Michigan State University. There, he had the
transforming experience of taking an art history
class, where he was introduced to a grand love of
art, as if “God had turned on a light switch”
Fr. Mech brings this art show to the community to help
us fully celebrate our continually developing identity
as a parish, and to allow us to immerse ourselves in
the many ways that God can reach out to us through
art. The pastor believes that Art For God’s Sake is an
uplifting declaration and reminder that even when
times are troubled, the Catholic church has always
protected and honored the masterful beauty
translated to us by the expressive talents of those who
are given a measure of the Lord’s creativity

Fr. Craig Giera received a Bachelors in Fine Arts at Wayne
State University with a double concentration in painting and
sculpture
•
Fr. Giera: “Before hearing ‘the call,’ I lived my life as an
artist. I always tried to further my creativity and develop my
technical ability in whatever media I used. I entered school
and received a Bachelors in Fine Arts at Wayne State
University with a double concentration in painting and
sculpture. Once school was over, I had some success
displaying and selling my art at different venues. After
working for a number of years in a gallery, I began a new
body of work in order to apply to graduate school. In the
paint and solitude I heard God and found myself. Art was
the forum where I was able to discern my vocation and
where my prayer became alive. I was ordained a Catholic
Priest on May 22, 2010 and I am currently the Associate
Pastor at St. Fabian Parish and St. Colman Parish in
Farmington Hills, MI”

“My fondest memories from my high school
years were those spent taking pictures and
working in the photo lab (dark room). It was
the first time I really excelled in any particular
area. The creative process captured my
imagination. During my college years at Mercy
College, I took many photography
courses. Although photography has always
been a great passion of mine, I didn’t pursue
photography as my livelihood
•
My main interest in photography is taking
pictures of people. Many of them are informal
portraits; others examine the human condition,
focusing on the needs of those who are poor and
struggling. Some of these photographs appeared
in the December 2009 issue of the Hour Detroit
magazine
I was ordained to the priesthood for the
Archdiocese of Detroit in 1995. I am currently
serving as the pastor of St. Pius X parish in
Southgate, Michigan
As a priest, it is very important to have a creative
outlet. Photography affords me a beautiful
opportunity to see God working in the creative
process. When I take pictures, I never know what
the end result will be. God coordinates so much
of what takes place. The who, what, where, and
how a picture will be taken normally is unknown
to me when I set out to take pictures
I once asked a friend, who was returning from
fishing, if he had a good day. He said, ‘Bob, every
day fishing is a good day.’ I feel the same way
whenever I return from having taken pictures”

A.J. Bellomo is a sculptor, designer, and former art
educator. His works have ranged from commercial
construction and community space design/landscape,
to residential building/renovation and private
gardens. From religious art to signage with sensitivity
and warmth, wood carvings have dominated his
works
Bellomo describes himself as “an artist with many
hats” who offers himself to people and their
community as an empty vessel when invited to do
so. He takes their “communion of dreams, prayers,
and stories” spills them out, and makes art
Bellomo’s boyhood dream was to build churches. He
also loved woodcarvings. After receiving a degree in
education from Wayne State University and becoming
a member of The National Teachers Association, he
began teaching art in 1970. He later became a
licensed residential builder in Michigan and began
doing residential renovations, developing shopping
centers, and creating daycare environments. In all his
projects, Tony does research into the owners’
personalities, needs, and desires so that his work
tends to improve lives in addition to structures. He
hopes that people interact with the spaces he builds
