No opening reception
Alfons Gallery’s annual exhibition of its collection of over 100 crèches from around the world presents pieces created by local and global artisans and brought here by sisters from our various missions, reflecting School Sisters of St. Francis’ global outreach. Every year the display changes as more creches are added to this collection. Accompanying these sets is related artwork in various mediums by School Sisters of St. Francis artists from our vast collection, which includes paintings dating back to the late 19th century. This year’s exhibition includes sculptures and two-dimensional works by S. Helena Steffensmeier and S. Lucinda Hubing.
