Seeing God Virtual Exhibit 2022 | Group 5
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. This exhibit will be shown at St. Paul’s Monastery throughout February and March.
Fall's Blazing Light
Being with nature and painting it's radiance is a passion of mine. The happy images of the sunshine, flowers, and forests, in my art are filled light and color to inspire uplifting feelings of joy, rejuvenation and a deep connection to spirit. Seeing natures beauty can pull us away from our hectic lives, even for just a minute, is to remind us who we are in God's light.

In prayer and meditation we seek numinous experiences where we can leave our egoist selves behind and join with the universal god...with grace that visionary threshold is revealed.

Monarchs at Play
When I am out in nature I see God's handiwork. I came upon these three butterflies fluttering from flower to flower and I saw them displaying the joy and love of God. I smiled and saw God's love for all living creatures great & small. Their color, daintiness, and beauty all reflect the work of the Master's hand.

A Prayer for Synodality
This work is a prayer for us to experience this time as Kairos, as the opportune moment to be transformed by encounter with God. On each square, I write the question that I have been pondering in my heart again and again, especially in this time of change: how do we make room for God, the movement of the Spirit, and the coming of Christ? The pattern repeats, the cycle continues, and we trust the slow reverberating flow of the Spirit, the quiet and all encompassing vastness of God calling us to renewal.

The Eternal Struggle
Over the last couple of years it has been apparent that the struggle is indeed real. We make strides against the pandemic and then we have to start over again with the battle. It reminds me of the struggle Sisyphus had at the hands of Hades. Keep hope and faith that we will be return to normal interactions soon and the pandemic would be over.
