Due to popular interest, the 2022 exhibit at the Haehn Museum, Art and Heritage Place, Saint Benedict’s Monastery, was selected to stay on display through 2023. Titled “By the Work of Her Hands,” this exhibit celebrates the vast array of art forms mastered by the hands of Sister Dennis Frandrup. Respected by colleagues, admired by her students at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University, and recognized by other artists, S. Dennis has been producing art for over 50 years. In this exciting exhibit, the teacher and artist come together to offer beauty to a weary world.
The exhibit, which reopened Tuesday, February 7, 2023, features new arrangements and continues through Friday, December 15, 2023. After experiencing a museum tour, guests are invited to visit Whitby Gift Shop, where many items handmade by S. Dennis, as well as other sisters and artisans, are available for purchase.
