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.

From the Corner of my Eye
Late last summer I was flying down a highway. Taking quick side glances, I caught the gorgeous flowers in the ditches. It made me think: How many times are we going so fast through life that we only see God from the corner of our eyes? Some fleeting image or situation imprints itself on our minds, and if we are lucky, our hearts. Actually, I think that's okay. Those imprints are ours to remember, meditate on, and in this case...to enjoy.

Fish Lake Lutheran Church, Harris, MN
I have family members interned at the Fish Lake Cemetery on the church grounds. We visit at least three times a year, and I always find the experience comforting and serene. The breeze blowing through the trees and surrounding fields is the only sound. When I see the church steeple in the background I feel God watching over those that have earned their rest.

Down the Bay
I believe we are all connected, all things—water, plants, light, rocks, and so this image came from that small beauty of everyday sights that suddenly catch your eye, which is most often when God appears.

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.
