Visual Prayer – New works by the Interfaith Artist Circle
May 31 – August 31, 2020
The Interfaith Artist Circle of the Twin Cities is a group of visual artists who pursue art as a spiritual journey. Originally founded in 2005 as the Jewish Women Artists’ Circle, the group now includes women artists from multiple faiths. The exhibit, Visual Prayer is the creative exploration of prayer through images, finding commonality and connectivity as well as diversity among religions. This exhibit was curated by Aimee Orkin, a Judaic artist and teacher who embarked on a one year sabbatical studying prayer with rabbis, scholars and cantors. “We hope our interfaith exhibits in the community will inspire collaboration among all faiths,” states Aimee Orkin.
Shalom Bayit (Peace in the Home)
May 3 – June 15, 2020
The Sabes & St. Paul JCCs hope you enjoy this unique online exhibition featuring artworks from our own community on the theme of Shalom Bayit (Peace in the Home). This foundational Jewish principle takes on new meaning in our current landscape, and as more and more communities around the globe have been sheltering-in-place, we are redefining what home is and what is means to have peace in the home.
Shalom Bayit is an ongoing practice – the intention is to create a sanctuary, a place that feels welcoming, calm and safe.
