New Exhibit Opens November 24th at St. Paul's Monastery Gallery
Superior Light: Pastel Paintings
by Rita Beyer Corrigan
Open 9a-6p daily
For as long as she can remember, Rita Beyer Corrigan has been fascinated with art making. Drawing and painting have always seemed to take her out of the sometimes-mundane reality of everyday life. For a long while she worked primarily from photographs and used pastel sticks, blended one stroke on top of another, to achieve depth of color. She has also learned through experience the power of working intuitively with color and paper and bare hands. Today she continues to find inspiration in the cloud formations and sunsets of Lake Superior, exploring methods.
Call for Artists: The Art and Spirituality Team of St. Paul's Monastery invites all artists to submit sacred art for the 2015 Seeing God juried exhibit. Deadline for submissions: 1/13/16
