Women and the Arts
The Grail is home to an amazing collection of art representing genres from music to textiles, poetry to ceramics. Our collection has been made by Grail hands, or given to The Grail as gifts over the years. Each year we offer pieces from our International Crèche Collection to small museums and institutions for display purposes. We welcome requests for this and other traveling exhibitions representing the mission of the Grail, its history and many ways The Grail has influenced generations.
Throughout the year The Grail will showcase special exhibits from its collection and from local artists. Watch this space for announcements.
Art at the Oratory
This series of events will showcase the role art contributed to social transformation through our Art at the Oratory series. Art at the Oratory will connect art with transformation (personal and societal) by showcasing a Grail member and her art. Each Showcase (3 a year) will include a community organization as partner, and will highlight the connection of Grail + Art = Transformation.
Art at the Oratory will be held at The Oratory in Clermont County, at the headquarters for The Grail in the US. Each showcase is free and open to the public. The exhibit will be on display from June thru November, Monday-Friday 10-4 or by appointment.
The first showcase will be a joint gallery show featuring Grail Member Ingrid Farnham’s watercolor paintings alongside local Cincinnati art studio Visionaries and Voices artists’ work! The event will take place the afternoon of Saturday June 12th(12n to 3pm) in The Oratory at Grailville, and will include a traditional gallery display of the art pieces as well as a maker space where participants can attend a lesson and create their own art piece. The maker space will be set up for one day only, but the exhibition will stay up through August.
If you are interested in attending please RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Admission will be free, but donations are always appreciated! We are also looking for any donations of art & craft supplies you may have laying around to use in the maker space, if you have anything you would like to donate please email email@example.com or drop by the office in Loveland Monday thru Friday between the hours of 10am-4pm. We greatly appreciate any donations you can give.
Make sure to follow The Grail on Facebook and Twitter and keep an eye out for updates! We hope you are as excited about this series as we are, and we hope all of you will have a chance to come out and appreciate some of the amazing artists of The Grail with us!
