VISUAL PRAYER

The Interfaith Artist Circle of the Twin Cities is a group of visual artists who pursue art as a spiritual journey. Originally founded in 2005 as the Jewish Women Artists’ Circle, the group now includes women artists from multiple faiths. The exhibit, Visual Prayer is the creative exploration of prayer through images, finding commonality and connectivity as well as diversity among religions. This exhibit was curated by Aimee Orkin, a Judaic artist and teacher who embarked on a one year sabbatical studying prayer with rabbis, scholars and cantors. “We hope our interfaith exhibits in the community will inspire collaboration among all faiths,” states Aimee Orkin.

Artists include: Jeanne Aaron, Beth Andrews, Hend Al-Mansour, Sandy M. Baron, Jane Bassuk, Kirsten Malcolm Berry, Sandra Brick, Gloria Cooper, Elizabeth Erickson, Lucy Rose Fischer, Renanah (Rani) Halpern, Angela Heida, Joyce Lyon, Aimee Orkin, Paula Leiter Pergament, Susan Peploe, Regula Ruselle, Anita White, Rochelle Woldorsky
