FAITH: Benedictine Center Issues call to artists

The Benedictine Center is issuing a call to Minnesota artists to participate in its eighth annual juried art show planned for Jan. 30, thru March 2, 2019. Submissions are due Jan. 16. Awards totaling $375 will be distributed to the top winners. 

According to Sam Rahberg, director of the Center, the award for first place is $150; $125 for second; $100 for third. Winners will be announced at the official reception on January 30.

Called “Seeing God,” this juried art show provides a venue for artists who think deeply about their work and whose creativity helps viewers experience the Divine. According to Rahberg, “We believe art can be an interpretive lens into the mystery of God, so we are looking for works that capture that deep sense of wonder.”

Contest rules, guidelines and submission form, can be found at, or by contacting Artist/Coordinator Kathy Fleming at 612-839-4439 or

Its goals are to encourage artists in their ability to give form to God’s revelation in human life, nature and the cosmos; and to show how arts can expand our capacity to encounter God.

The Benedictine Center is a ministry of the Benedictine Sisters of St. Paul’s Monastery, which is located at 2675 Benet Road in Maplewood.
