Gallery Features ‘Beauty of Liturgical Design’


VestmentSinsinawa Art Gallery is presenting “The Beauty of Liturgical Design: Holy Fabrics” Jan. 12 through Feb. 9, 8 a.m.-7 p.m. daily. Please check our website for current COVID protocols. We’re featuring original designs and handmade liturgical vestments and other items by Dominican Sisters Felix Plouf, OP (1888-1979), and Angelique Sabourin, OP (1867-1957). They had extensive backgrounds in textiles, design, sewing, applique, and needlework. One set of vestments on display was designed by Sister Angelique for the centennial of the Sinsinawa Dominican Congregation in 1948. She chose her color palette and hand dyed the silk threads that she used. Her designs celebrate our Dominican heritage through the symbols of the Order and images of the holy men and women and scenes from the life of St. Dominic. For more information, contact Arrangements at 608-748-4411 or visit our website at Sinsinawa Mound, the motherhouse for the Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters, is located in southwest Wisconsin on County Road Z, off Highway 11, about five miles northeast of Dubuque.
