Visual Prayer
An Exhibit of the Interfaith Artist Circle

The Interfaith Artists Circle of the Twin Cities is a group of visual artists who create art on spiritual themes and pursue art as a spiritual journey. Originally founded in 2005 as the Jewish Women Artists’ Circle, the group became interfaith in 2015.

An important component of the Circle is studying with scholars, who provide a foundation in spiritual learning and inspire the individual art works. The artists in the interfaith group are diverse in traditions, observance, and belief. Exploring prayer through art is a way to find commonality and connectivity among religions and to appreciate and respect similarities and differences.

The Artists
Jeanne Aaron • Hend al-Mansour • Beth Andrews • Sandy M. Baron • Jane Bassuk • Sandra Brick • Gloria Cooper Elizabeth Erickson • Lucy Rose Fischer • Renanah (Rani) Halpern • Angela Heida Hammer • Fawzia Khan • Joyce Lyon • Kirsten Malcolm Berry • Aimee Orkin • Susan Peploe • Paula Leiter Pergament • Regula Russelle • Anita White • Rochelle Woldorsky
