Art Exhibitions (through Nov. 2)

“Watercolor and Wonder: Shrines” by Mary Billingsley, M.F.A.
Each work begins with the gathering of significant objects for a still life or "stage set" depicting an aspect of Christ's life. Some of the compositional elements are obvious religious symbols while others, everyday found objects, indirectly evoke the subject and help to draw the viewer into the painting. Mahady Gallery – Shields Center for the Arts

“Scrolls” by the late Ana Maria Carmona Cusick
Part of the extensive Carmona Collection, donated to Marywood University by her husband, Daniel L. Cusick, these Chinese scrolls convey her deep knowledge of China, its spirit and its beauty.  Working in traditional Chinese styles, Carmona has carried time-honored modes into the new millennium. Suraci Gallery – Shields Center for the Arts

“Marywood Print Guild – Annual Exhibition”
Kresge Room – Insalaco Center for Studio Arts
