Marie Louise Trichet

art gallery

What was any art but a mold in which to imprison for a moment the shining elusive element which is life itself – life hurrying past us and running away, too strong to stop, too sweet to lose.” –Willa Cather

What a happy marriage the Marie Louise Trichet Gallery and Wisdom House Retreat and Conference Center enjoy. Over 25 years a wide variety of artists working in various mediums have exhibited in the gallery, each capturing some element of life that reveals the Divine.

Visit the gallery Monday through Saturday* 10 am to 4 pm. Come breathe in this quiet space and catch a glimpse of a moment of creation.

*It is advisable to call to inquire about Saturday hours.
