About Visio Divina

Visio Divina is a New Creation art gallery that invites us to explore the dynamic unity of God, cosmos, and humanity through the contemplative engagement of images. Visio Divina, or “divine seeing,” shares a history with the ancient practice of lectio divina, through which religious scripture was read through the heart as well as through the mind.

Photographs, paintings, performance pieces, sculpture, icons, and other images will be offered here as a perceptual encounter of the divine love that flows in, through, and as all things. Visio Divina is a hope that we can see with fresh eyes and an open heart, transforming our world and ourselves through the depth and richness of the visual field.
