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.
The Monastery Gallery of Art is pleased to offer our newest exhibit:
PRISON ART. This exhibition features work from the Community
Partners in Action Prison Arts Program Permanent Collection and provides a window into the world of the prison–into lives lived surrounded by cinder block walls, and the work being done to transcend those walls.
