Faces of Our Lady

FACES OF OUR LADY Catholic Artists of the 90s

Exhibited at the Marian Library: October 1 - 31, 1991

Catholic Artists of the 80s was founded by Sr. Margaret Beaudette, S.C., in New York in 1980. Now, Catholic Artists of the 90s claims a membership of over two hundred ecumenical artists throughout the United States. Affiliated with The Catholic Fine Arts Society, these artists share their spirituality through art.

The artists of this juried show were asked to focus their work on the Blessed Virgin Mary, thus the show title, "Faces of Our Lady." Profound serenity, grace, and strength are expressed through media ranging from the fluid qualities of oil and charcoal to the solidity of bronze and clay. Marian spirituality emanates from vivid tones as well as subtle shades. Despite the diverse perspectives of Our Lady represented, each piece reflects the unifying thread of man expressing his faith through art.
