St. Paul’s Monastery Gallery

BENEDICTINES HAVE ALWAYS ENCOURAGED ARTISTS TO EXPRESS THE BEAUTY ONE EXPERIENCES IN ENCOUNTERING GOD THROUGH ONE'S OWN CREATIVITY. Their work contributes to keeping us mindful of God’s abiding presence. St. Paul’s Monastery Art Gallery, with the support of related programming through the Benedictine Center, seeks ways to cultivate the sacramental sense that infuses religiously-themed art and to deepen the role of art as a formative part of Christian life and discipleship. The gallery is open 9a-6p daily.

 

Current Exhibit

Formed In Vision, Inspired for Mission: The Living Legacy of the Sisters of St. Paul's Monastery

open 9a-69 daily thru Aug. 30

The Sisters of St. Paul’s Monastery embody a heritage of Christian service and the courage it takes to risk all for a greater good. The mission to bear witness to the Gospel in everything they do finds its fire in core values that do not age, do not yield in the face of change, and sustain them still in creating a new future. In this exhibit, artist friends of the Monastery offer visual testimony in color and form to the beauty and power of these values.
