On Saturday, May 18 at 3:30 p.m. the Marie Louise Trichet Art Gallery at Wisdom House Spiritual Retreat and Conference Center at 229 Litchfield Road in East Litchfield will host an opening reception of a distinctive interactive art exhibit, “The Enduring Presence of Wisdom Through the Years: A celebration of the Daughters of Wisdom in Litchfield For 70 Years.”
This special exhibit will be on display May 18 through August 17, 2019, and will also commemorate the 25th Year of Wisdom House’s popular Marie Louise Trichet Art Gallery.
In addition to the in-house permanent display of historical and contemporary photos and artifacts, an application (APP) link will be available for smartphones that will enable the special exhibit’s still photos to morph into “live” video stories highlighting the past, present, and future of the Daughters of Wisdom ministries.
At 3:30 p.m. a special panel discussion will present insights and memories from several members of the Daughters of Wisdom, including former Wisdom House Administrator, Rosemarie Greco, and Provincial Head, Catherine Sheehan, among others.
A reception will follow the panel discussion. Reservations are requested for the free event.
Wisdom House, a ministry of the Daughters of Wisdom, is an interfaith Retreat and Conference Center presenting programs that celebrate the sacred in everyday life, the arts and ecology. We offer hospitality to academic, nonprofit, and business organizations.
The Daughters of Wisdom originated in 18th Century France and founded the US Province in 1949 with the purchase of the former Spruce Brook Farm in East Litchfield. Originally, the property was used as a Convent and Novitiate.
Open to the public, the “The Enduring Presence of Wisdom Through the Years: A celebration of the Daughters of Wisdom in Litchfield For 70 Years” exhibit will run through August 17, 2019.
