2019 Spring Art Show: “In praise of . . .

The Chapter 57 Gallery is lined with new pieces to mark Women’s History month. The theme “In praise of…” is in celebration of women and their art in all forms.

“This year we are proud to exhibit the art of our Benedictine Sisters, Oblates and invited friends of the monastery,” said Sister Margaret Ann Pilewski, manager of the monastery’s Chapter 57 Gift Shop and organizer of the show. “Our lives are filled with reasons to give praise and this group of women exhibits unique ways of speaking inner truths and experiences through an array of media types.”

The show opened on Sunday, March 10. “So much talent . . . so much beauty,” said Sister Anne Wambach, prioress. “We are truly blessed and I thank Sister Margaret Ann for organizing such a lovely exhibit.”

Guests are welcome to visit the gallery. It is open on Sundays from 10:30 am until noon. “Some of the works are for sale, others are not; but all are meant to be enjoyed,” said Sister Margaret Ann. “Do come and visit. You may be inspired; you may simply be delighted. In either case, you won’t be disappointed.”
