Women's Art Show

This year's annual art show--in celebration of Women's History Month--opens Sunday, March 7 and will run through Sunday, April 11. The title is "Looking Large" and all of the pieces are at least 8"x10"--most even larger. Many of the photographers also have new smaller works inside our gift shop, Chapter 57.

Each Monday and Thursday this month I'll feature one or two of the pieces--with a sneak preview starting today, since the show was hung yesterday.

Here's an appropriate beginning, Benedict and Scholastica, taken by Sr. Ann Hoffman in Italy last summer.

The beautiful windows are by Marie Turner, sister of Sr. Margaret Ann, art show director.

My pictures don't begin to do these justice. Stop by and see them for yourself!
