Good Shepherd Gallery promotes peace and affirms human dignity
Shepherding Images Studio & Good Shepherd Gallery is a ministry of Sisters of the Good Shepherd. The heart of the ministry is the Good Shepherd Gallery, which exhibits uplifting and family-friendly art that promotes peace and affirms human dignity. The gallery also offers classes and workshops that link creativity and spirituality.
The sacred arts ministry also involves Sister Glynis Mary McManamon in painting icons for public viewing and working with schools and community groups on collaborative exhibitions and programs. Shepherding Images Studio & Good Shepherd Gallery presents opportunities for youth and adults to have their own shows of artwork.
Good Shepherd Gallery welcomes all
Sister Glynis Mary founded Shepherding Images Studio and Good Shepherd Gallery. She cut the purple ribbon of the Greater North County Chamber of Commerce and red ribbon of the City of Ferguson to commemorate the opening on November 17, 2015.
Immediately after opening the doors to the art studio and gallery, Sister Glynis Mary began accepting invitations to participate in local business events, including Small Business Saturday and Ferguson’s annual Twilight Christmas House Tour. A few months after opening, on June 23, 2016, Global Sisters Report ran an article about Sr. Glynis Mary and her sacred arts enterprise.
Sister Glynis founded the studio and gallery as a sacred space that could inspire people to reflect on a larger worldview. She is no stranger to creating and exhibiting art.
For years Sr. Glynis ran Shepherding Images, a studio and gallery in Louisville, Kentucky, before being asked by her religious community to serve as Human Resources manager at the Province Center in St. Louis. Sister Glynis Mary is excited and grateful to have returned to her love of ministering to others through art, reflection and interaction.
Shepherding Images Studio & Good Shepherd Gallery incorporates a small meditation space and small tea area for people who visit and want a quiet space for rest and quiet reflection.
“Shepherding Images Studio & Good Shepherd Gallery is more than a business; it is a sacred place where others can always feel welcome,” Sister Glynis Mary said.
The studio/gallery is open every Wednesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Friday from 2 p.m. – 8 p.m. Saturday from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. The gallery is open on Tuesdays by appointment only, and is closed on Sundays and Mondays.
