Cultural Encounter through Art

Cultural Encounter through Art

In 2021, the Dominican Family is celebrating the 800th anniversary of the death of Our Holy Father St. Dominic during a jubilee year starting on the 6th of January 2021 until the 6th of January 2022. The Dominican Sisters of San Rafael are joining with OPWest Dominican Congregations in celebration by offering monthly reflections on the theme “At Table with St. Dominic,” which is inspired by the Mascarella table, the table on which the first portrait of St. Dominic was painted shortly after his canonization. Fr. Gerard Francisco P. Timoner, OP shared: “We will celebrate St. Dominic, not as a saint alone on a pedestal, but a saint enjoying table fellowship with his brothers, gathered by the same vocation to preach God’s Word and sharing God’s gift of food and drink.”

Sr. Joanne Cullimore, OP offers the following reflection for the January 2021 installation.

“At the Table with Dominic – Cultural Encounter through Art.” In a brief video, Sr. Joanne walks viewers through her process of engaging with different cultures through her watercolor paintings.
