    Red Corvette - not sure what your definition of illustrator vs. artist is, but illustrators are artists. Bloch happens to be a masterful artist. Every element necessary to make fine art is employed by him - exceptionally well.

    I love religious art. And the LDS Church is blessed in abundance with our own artists and connections like these to others.

    Will you let us know for how long it will stay, and although free --- will tickets be required (and from whom do we get them, and from the 2010 viewing --- what are the best days to visit?

    I will propbably drive the 11 hours just to make the visit.

    Yes, there are other great artists which is why the work of other artists will be part of this exhibit. Bloch also has other works which have not yet been viewed here and will be part of the exhibit. This is a different exhibit, not a repeat. There probably no chance I would make it to Europe to see these paintings so Thank You for bringing them here. Any chance I get to see this kind of art is a real treat for me and my family.

    Bloch was the Thomas Kinkade of his day.
