DESCRIPTION

The Walsh Gallery Presents

DRIVING WITHOUT DESTINATION

SEPTEMBER 7 –OCTOBER 2, 2010

OPENING RECEPTION – THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 16 5PM TO 8PM

The Walsh Gallery is pleased to announce a group exhibition of contemporary art in collaboration with the G.K. Chesterton Institute for Faith and Culture.  Exhibiting artists were inspired by an essay written by Dr. Dermot Quinn, in which he ponders the ramifications of global culture.   Quinn’s essay reflects upon G.K. Chesterton’s seminal essay, “The Outline of Insanity” which although published in 1926, accurately predicts the effects of cultural and political homogeny.  Curators, Tony Capparelli and Jeanne Brasile were motivated to produce the exhibition due to the timely subject matter that ponders the thought that “oneness” denies the beauty and glory of diversity in an increasingly homogenous world.

Participating artists include:  Shannon Bellum, Ellen Denuto, Billy Friebele, Kathleen Gerard, Allan Gorman, Max Heller, So Yoon Lym, Tony Murray, Mary Ann Reilly, Ryan Roa, Larry Ross, Joan Sonnenfeld, Bill Westheimer and Heidi Younger.  The artists were selected through an open call process and juried by the curators, Father Ian Boyd, C.S.B. and Director of the Chesterton Institute, Gloria Garafulich-Grabois and Dermot Quinn, Ph.D, Professor of History at Seton Hall University.  The jury panel aimed to present a balance of themes and media in the exhibition.  A symposium will take place on Saturday, October 2nd at 2pm in the Walsh Gallery.  Speakers include Father Ian Boyd, who is also Editor of the Chesterton Review and Dr. Dermot Quinn.  All events are free and open to the public.
