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.

In my depiction of the Trinity, God the Father is symbolized by his creative hand, the Holy Spirit as a dove with ascending flames, and Christ as the paschal lamb, accompanied by the cross and a butterfly, a symbol for resurrection.

During these long winter months, under the siege of a pandemic, I endured sawdust, fatigue and finger cuts to craft this piece. It was a spiritual experience, truly a path to “Seeing God".

Like the gifts of Epiphany and flames of Pentecost, God’s gifts provide for all. As these banners unfurl, they dispense their radical, healing beauty, a gift of naming and communication from God: we are all children of God, called to bring goodness into the world.

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.
