Briefly Speaking

Upcoming events focus on art, service and professional development.

NEW EXHIBIT AT MARIAN LIBRARY MARCH 19-APRIL 20

A new exhibit, “Luke’s Portrait of the Madonna: Interpreting Luke in Painting and Calligraphy,” opens at the Marian Library March 19 and runs through April 20. It is free and open to the public during library hours. It shows how Ann Bain captures Mary’s words as found in the New Testament. It also includes lithographs by André Bergeron that convey his empathy for Luke’s Mary. The result of this artistic dialogue is a Madonna for mind and heart. The library is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year. More information is available online.
