Arts Events: June 1, 2017

University of Dayton alumna Patti Trick Paulus presents her artistic journey in an exhibition of calligraphy and charcoal drawings. Enjoy this work and other inspiring arts experiences during the upcoming weeks.


March 25 – June 9, 2017 in the Marian Library Gallery

The 24 oil paintings in this exhibit, by Cincinnati artist Holly Schapker, are an attempt to bring together, in a harmonious way, three facets of Marian art: nature, history, and spirituality. The exhibit is an invitation to visio divina, a meditation about Our Lady, and her meaning for us, as tradition and new insights suggest. The Marian Library is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
