L-R: Sisters Silvia Romero, Madeleine Munday and Rosalie Nguyen enjoy opening night of the January art exhibit at Good Shepherd Arts Center in Ferguson.
Warmth and Light, the January exhibit at Good Shepherd Arts Center, filled the space with a wide variety of expressions. The artists whose works were on display are Artist Associates of the center and have shown their work there before.
Sacred arts ministry
Good Shepherd Arts Center is a sacred arts 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 presents opportunities for youth and adults to have their own shows of artwork and 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.
Shows in 2018
Upcoming shows in 2018 will introduce new visual and performing artists to the space, including children from North County Catholic Schools in February and residents from Ferguson in August.
