One Faith: East and West International Art Exhibition in NYC

For those who are within striking distance of New York City, there is an exhibition of sacred art at the NYU Catholic Center, 238 Thompson Street, this week. Entitled One Faith: East and West it features works of by working artists such as Ken Woo, John C. Traynor, Dony Mac Manus, Sister Eliseea Papaciòc, Carl Fougerousse, Ladislav Zaborsky, Linus Meldrum, Ioan Gotia and Clemens Fuchs (whose work was recently featured on this site). The exhibition includes sculpture, stained glass and paintings in a range of naturalistic, iconographic and gothic styles. After this week it goes on tour and moves Steuvenville, OH in the Fall and thereafter leaves the US and goes to Beijing and Moscow and finally returns to NYC in a year's time.

There is a series of lunchtime and evening talks at the center about sacred art and the works on show at the exhibition by the curator, Jennifer Healy. For information go to http://onefaithexhibition.org/. The Facebook page has the same name as the exhibition - One Faith: East and West.

This exhibition is organized by the Language & Catechetical Institute located in Gaming, Austria. All proceeds will fund student scholarships for young Catholics from Eastern Europe, China, and Russia. (www.lciaustria.org)and sponsored by Our Sunday Visitor.
