Please join us from 6-9pm on Friday October 19, 2018 at Chalice Abbey Center for Spirituality and the Arts for the opening of an exhibition of new work from artist Rob Weingart.
For Rob Weingart, the process of making is one of thoughtful and careful consideration. It is easy to imagine his small, intricate, three-dimensional abstract pieces scaled up to monumental size, but part of their allure is their intimate proportion, which invites the viewer to enter into a state of imaginative attention. “Art production, for me, is a meditative act.” Weingart says, “It’s about sitting down , spending time with materials, letting them dictate the outcome of the work. I never have an idea in terms of how I’d like the finished object to appear”
Weingart received a BFA from University of North Texas and MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He is an occasional curator and instructor of art at Amarillo College and West Texas A&M University.

|TUE||6:15 PM – 7:15 PM||Centering Prayer
Centering Prayer is a simple form of sitting meditation which has its roots in the bedrock of Christian contemplative tradition from the fourteenth century. The essence of Centering Prayer consists of learning to withdraw attention from our thoughts in order to rest in a gentle, open attentiveness to God. The release of a thought is accomplished with the help of a sacred word which helps return you to open awareness. Centering Prayer is done not with your attention but with your intention to maintain an openness to God.
Centering Prayer is led by Sharri Fisher. Sharri is a member of Spiritual Directors International and holds a certificate from Hesychia School of Spiritual Direction in Tuscon, Arizona.
