Quilts exhibition in Palazzo Pancrazi

More or less the last exhibition of the summer season is now taking place in the Palazzo Pancrazi in Barga Vecchia.

A series of intricate  hand stitched and highly coloured quilts made by the Mount Tabor Centre for Art and Spirituality.

The Mount Tabor Centre for Art and Spirituality is an international organisation facilitating ecumenical dialogue through educational symposia, visual and performing arts, spiritual retreats and exhibitions of contemporary sacred art.

Via Sacra, home of the Mount Tabor Ecumenical Centre in Barga provides a context for reflection and discussion about faith and creativity, contemplation and communication, liturgy and beauty.

Via Sacra is home to a small but vibrant resident household of religious brothers and sisters from the ecumenical Community of Jesus on Cape Cod Massachusetts. Supported by the Benedictine life of the Community of Jesus, Via Sacra provides an atmosphere of monastic hospitality of peace. Members of the villa household express their monastic vocation, welcoming guests in a spirit of generosity and service.

10:00 AM – 12:00 NOON; 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM their site can be seen here

The artist is someone in communion with life in a deeply significant way. People turn to the artist as to a priest who enjoys this privileged communion in order to give it to others. His creativity obliges him to transmit it to others, and so we look to the artist as to a giver of spiritual life. By doing that, we acknowledge art’s potential to nourish our craving for richer, deeper, more meaningful life, and we are already changed.
