About the MGA
The Monastery Gallery of Art, at Holy Family Passionist Retreat Center, unites the arts, creativity and the sacred. We welcome works from artists of all backgrounds drawing on the wisdom of diverse faith traditions. Through exhibitions and educational programs, The Monastery Gallery of Art values and promotes all forms of art that explore themes of compassion, resilience, peacemaking, loving kindness, social justice, and care for others and our planet.
Portraiture - Virtual Gallery
We are pleased to introduce our third virtual exhibit, Portraiture.
We are sad that this exhibit cannot be held in the Gallery, as you can see so much more when the portrait is directly in front of you. However, we are grateful that the pictures presented can help you not only appreciate the talented artists who submitted work, but also that learnings, emotions and perhaps our commonality can shine through the technological presentation.
Take a virtual journey through this exhibit.
Interested in learning more about The Monastery Gallery of Art or submitting a piece for future exhibits, say hello.
