Beauty’s where you find it

THE HOPE, by Sister Jeanne Derer, FSM

In only its second year, the art exhibit featuring sisters and priests has become the favorite of Sister Glynis Mary McManamon, RGS, at Good Shepherd Gallery in Ferguson.

And it already has doubled in number of artists, from just seven last year to 15 for the show Sunday, May 7, through Thursday, May 25, at the gallery in Ferguson.

With the theme, "Beauty Will Save the World," the annual exhibit will feature 13 religious sisters and two priests from the Archdiocese of St. Louis, with eight artists joining seven returning from the "Laudato Si'" priest/religious show last year.

Exhibit portrays the real cost of unrelenting violence

"Sudarios" by Erika Diettes is a collection of portraits of women reliving "the moment that divided her life in two," alive but not living with grief from witnessing family embers who were victims of violence during unrest in Colombia.

The exhibition of 20 intimate portraits of women reliving a tragic period of their lives is moving — both figuratively and literally.

The photographs by Colombian artist Erika Diettes in "Sudarios" are of women who were forced to witness the torture and murder of their loved ones during Colombia's 50 years of civil conflict. The display is carefully designed to make the portraits come alive.
