Windsock Visitation

This weekend, for our annual April Community Weekend, we have the privilege to welcome Brother Mickey McGrath to our home and to enjoy his presentations on blending art and faith.

We own one of his paintings, Windsock Visitation, a beautiful and unique take on the Visitation scene of Mary visiting Elizabeth, celebrated liturgically in late May.

Here's ours:

Our first floor hall is a little bit of an art gallery for us. Besides this painting we have two or three sites where pieces from our Brother Thomas collection are always on display, a number of lovely gift pieces down the east hall, and even sisters' works along the Chapter 57 south hall. Sister Jean, our hospitality director, always gives our first-time guests the full tour of our "collection" when they arrive.
