Art exhibits at Holy Wisdom Monastery

The Benedictine Sisters at Holy Wisdom Monastery sponsor three art exhibits every year as part of their mission. Held in the spring, summer and fall, these exhibits hang in the gathering area of the LEED-certified monastery building. Selected artwork is in keeping with the monastic environment and reflects the Benedictine values of beauty, balance, simplicity, contemplation, and reverence for creation.
