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.

Altar Piece 25, Assumption
My painting is a literal approach to the Seeing God Exhibition. It is an abstract of Titian's Assumption of the Virgin. That painting depicts Mary seeing God as she is assumed into heaven. Titian's circular heaven of yellows and gold is separated by cool colors from the natural colors of earth. Yet, he joins them both with the red triangular formation of Mary and the figures below. Mary sees God and we see God in Titian's masterful composition and color.

Searing the Darkness
The darkness that has permeated the global being this past year has insinuated itself into every area of our lives. Loneliness, fear, hopelessness gather into the vortex of this darkness. But deep within we know there is a flame that will sear through and dissipate this destructive force. God’s love is deeper and greater than any darkness and envelopes us with strength to move through and out of the chaos.

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.
