Seeing God: An Exhibit of Sacred Art 2021
Enjoy this year's virtual exhibit! We invite you to pause with each image as if you were walking our Gallery at St. Paul’s Monastery and read the artist’s statement about their piece. The rest of the exhibit will be posted on the blog throughout February and March. Please check back regularly to experience the entire Seeing God 2021 Virtual Exhibit.

Memorial Flowers for Victims of the Pandemic
My flower subjects reflect my passion for life. When I am with them I am fully alive, full of the Spirit of Life. Their beauty inspires me and gives me great joy and hope. I am filled with gratitude that this time alone has allowed me to recapture my spiritual dimension. Not everyone has been so fortunate. Therefore, in this time of chaos and suffering, I felt compelled to create a flower memorial honoring the victims of this pandemic.

Carnations In Cut-off 7Up Bottles
I believe God is everywhere and in everything. How we see and perceive God's presence makes the difference. "Yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these." Matthew 6:29 (ESV)

About this Exhibit
Seeing God: An Exhibit of Sacred Art is virtual for 2021. To continue this important, long-standing exhibit, we are moving it online this year. While the Gallery at St. Paul’s Monastery is not physically open to hang this exhibit, we still need art, especially now. Artists' work will speak to the following questions: What challenges and what blessings are you experiencing as you live and make art now? How are you Seeing God during this unprecedented time? Where are you Seeing God? During this pause in the Benedictine Center programming, this exhibit will provide a much-needed source of inspiration to those who would otherwise come to the monastery. Entries will be posted online throughout February and March. VIEW ALL SEEING GOD 2021 POSTS.
