Many in Nauvoo feel the effects of the economy in an especially direct way - there are fewer opportunities in our small town. This site and our local Nauvoo shop, gallery, craftsmen, artists, and various townspeople who make and sell these products support their families through beautiful hard work. Those who staff the local stores work side by side with those who staff this website - adding more products, shipping boxes, stocking shelves, and successfully running a growing local business that adds to the economy of little Nauvoo.

President Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the following statement regarding the name of the Church.

"The Lord has impressed upon my mind the importance of the name He has revealed for His Church, even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We have work before us to bring ourselves in harmony with His will."

The Nauvoo Gallery has been working to put our website and our gallery store in Nauvoo, Illinois in harmony with this important revelation. It’s been customary for websites like ours to use terms like LDS Art, LDS Temple Art, LDS pictures or Mormon Art when describing our products for Google and other search engines. Our intention has been to help people find what has been termed as LDS products & LDS Gifts. It took many many months to build and add products to this website using those relevant and popular search terms - please bear with us as we still find each instance where we can better be in harmony with President Nelson’s message. Thank you for your patience and your kindness during this process
