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.

Artist statement: My trip to Ireland to bring me closer to my ancestral roots gave me a better understanding of one of my favorite writers, John O'Donohue. His Celtic soul spoke to my Celtic soul like no other in his warmth, depth, and clarity.
One of the main themes we share is the importance of Beauty in the Spiritual Life. Also, I began to understand that I did not have to travel the world to find beauty. It is right here in my own back yard; in the North Woods and in the faces of family and friends. Like Dororthy in the Wizard of Oz, I found that "there is no place like home."
