Nature @ prayer

NATURAL WOOD pieces discovered and interpreted by the late artist, Maryknoll Sister Marie Pierre Semler (left), form the basis of this rare exhibit in our Spellman room now till November 15. Entitled "Nature Prays" this collection of almost 30 pieces captures Semlers spirituality that the work of nature is prayer.

This central piece is entitled "Desolation."
Her artist's eye allowed her to discover both sublime meaning and whimsical fancy within these random (at least to the untrained mind) shapes hewn of wood by wind, sea and earth.

In addition, several reproductions of her original sculptures and paintings will be offered for sale in the corner of the Spellman Room. Since her death in 1993, her collection has been managed by her grandnephew and his wife.
