Mariella Zevallos is the Founder and Director of Exhibit of the Marian Art Exhibitions at Star of the Sea Parish. She has been developing this initiative for the past 6 years. She presented the First Marian Art Exhibition in May 2022, featuring the Stella Maris Academy children’s Marian art work in collaboration with the school Art teachers: Former SMA Art Teacher, Jacqueline Jacobi (2022 & 2023) and this year (2024) the children are creating their Marian art work under the leadership of Mrs. Marilyn Bridon current Art teacher at Stella Maris Academy. To promote religious artistic creativity and to foster devotion to our Lady Virgin Mary, Mariella also likes to invite local sacred artists to submit their Marian work to be considered for these exhibits.

A GLIMPSE OF OUR 2023 MARIAN ART EXHIBITION

DO YOU WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT VIRGIN MARY?

We invite you to visit our church where we have 16 shrines representing some of her apparitions… There is so much to learn about our mother Virgin Mary!

Visit the 16 Apparition shrines at our church. Star of the Sea is open Monday-Sunday 6am- 7pm.

RESOURCES

Her Face: Images of the Virgin Mary in Art portrays the life of the mother of Christ with nearly 100 full-page, color reproductions of the Virgin’s face as depicted by the world’s greatest artists from the twelfth century to the present. These compelling images are accompanied by selections from early to modern sacred and secular texts. Viewed together in this unique pictorial narrative, the life-sized portraits of Mary illuminate her dual nature as virgin and mother, mortal woman and immortal Queen of Heaven with a rare vitality, immediacy, and intensity that other collections lack.

The story about the Walk to Mary…

The Walk to Mary has become a pilgrimage like no other in the world. Thousands of people join this walk yearly in the state of Wisconsin. They start with St. Joseph (at the National Shrine of St. Joseph) and walk to Mary (at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Champion, Wisconsin) to get to Jesus.  This annual pilgrimage has impacted lives and filled hearts with many blessings from the Holy Family.  

America’s only Church-approved Marian apparition site, where in 1859, the Blessed Mother appeared to Adele Brise on the site of our Lady of Champion, Wisconsin. https://championshrine.org
