Art of The Ordinary – Opening Reception
Thursday, August 8, 2019 @ 6PM
Newspaper and show curated by former Sheen Center artists-in-residence Teresa Blackman and Joey Danaher
“I listen to the clock tick. Downstairs the thermostat has just stopped humming. God is in this room.” – Thomas Merton
Art of The Ordinary: Beauty in the Home presents work from more than twenty artists who graced the pages of our first three issues. Like the art in our newspaper, the art in the exhibition celebrates beauty in and around the Catholic Church by talented artists from around the world. Through a variety of media, from prints and paintings to lamps and pillows, we hope to lead families to a daily and ordinary encounter with beauty. We believe an encounter with beauty leads to an encounter with Christ. Enjoy the show because God is in the room.
