“The artist aspires to create a kind of beauty with the power to elevate the emotions, the spirit.”

Marjorie Schlossman

The chaplets are currently on display at the State Capitol in Bismarck, July 31 - August 18, 2007.

The Jamestown College (Jamestown, N.D.) campus will be exhibiting the chaplets August 20 until the weather turns. Check back to this site for dates on upcoming exhibits.

Artist Marjorie Schlossman collaborated with various architects to build environments in which her paintings hang. The first, The Roberts Street Chapel in downtown Fargo, North Dakota, preceded 6 smaller, more intimate and moveable chapels she calls "chaplets." She relished the idea of painting inside each finished chapel or chaplet,†responding to that specific environment and its inspirations.

These spaces, and the art within them, are designed to provide people with a momentís respite from daily life, whether that moment is used to contemplate, pray, mourn or celebrate. Unlike a gallery, none of the artwork is for sale. Unlike a museum, there is no charge to enter.
