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.

Storm and Calm
I see God in nature, especially trees and plants. I love to print their leaves onto fabric. This piece represents the many things I depend on during these difficult times to help me find strength, peace, and hope. The Native American petroglyphs for storm and rain cap the columns of this piece. I see God in my art making and that of others, giving me the solace needed when separated from my family and friends for so many months.

When I am in nature amidst beautiful scenes such as waterfalls, I feel grounded, at peace, and in awe of God's creations. In these moments I see and feel God all around me, and His light rejuvenating my soul. Even during dark times, I find this a blessing. I felt compelled to take this photograph of a ballerina practicing yoga in nature to capture the essence of how I feel that I may share it with others.

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.
