Visual Prayer: The Interfaith Artists Circle

Visual Prayer: The Interfaith Artists Circle 2021

Our current art exhibit is VISUAL PRAYER.  Visual prayer is the creative exploration and expression of prayer through images. Although this is a contemporary concept, there is a long history of using art in worship – including illuminated religious books.

We are excited and honored to host the work of The Interfaith Artists Circle of the Twin Cities for this exhibit.  They are a group of visual artists who pursue art as a spiritual journey. Originally founded in 2005 as the Jewish Women Artists’ Circle, the group has become an intersection of multiple faiths, with exhibitions in galleries, universities, and alternative venues in the Twin Cities and greater Minnesota.

These 20 artists of the interfaith group represent a diversity of traditions, observance, and belief. By exploring prayer through their work, the artists develop a connectivity, greater appreciation, and respect for the similarities and differences among religions.

We hope you will join us in the gallery to experience their work as we hold the world in prayer as our year comes to a close. Masks and proof of vaccination status are required to enter the Monastery.   This exhibit will run from November 8th through January 21st when we will again host our Seeing God exhibit. You can find more information on these artists at
