America magazine has published a wonderful slideshow of contemporary Catholic art by women in its online edition. It features 21 works–paintings, icons, drawings, sculpture–in different styles. It was curated by assistant editor Ashley McKinless.
The art show supports the current issue of the magazine on “Women in the Life of the Church.” The editors point to something Pope Francis said in his famous interview:
Pope Francis expressed his conviction that it is “necessary to broaden the opportunities” for women in the church, and to “think about the specific place of women also in those places where the authority of the church is exercised.”
