Some of Sister Sue’s black and white photography was featured in the 2021 exhibit at INAI gallery titled “Quiet Places, Sacred Spaces.”
The Dominican Institute of the Arts provides this profile of Sister Sue and her artistic style:
Sister Suzanne uses the camera to create visual poetry and express her understanding that everything is connected. Her subjects are light, subtle movement, openings, textures and juxtapositions in which the silence of the moment is revealed. She is a contemplative photographer, grounded in the beauty of the natural world as she explores inner and outer landscapes.
Sister Suzanne Schreiber, OP, a Dominican Sister of Adrian, has served the Dominican Literacy Center and the Capuchin Soup Kitchen Art Program as a documentary photographer. She has been an art and photography teacher in two Detroit area high schools and has served on the Exhibit Committee at Swords into Plowshares Peace Center and Gallery. All of these ministries are in Detroit.
Currently Sister Suzanne is the coordinator of INAI: A Place Apart, a meditation center and art gallery developed in 2017 and built on the legacy of Sisters Barbara Chenicek, OP and Rita Schiltz, OP. INAI is a ministry of Weber Retreat and Conference Center in Adrian, Michigan.
She received her Bachelor’s degree in Art from Siena Heights University, a Master of Education degree in Art Education from Wayne State University, and a Master’s degree in Religious Studies from Mundelein College, Chicago.
