Exhibit inspired by Wendell Berry opens Oct. 24 at St. Catharine College

The St. Catharine College Berry Farming Program and Fine Arts Program are hosting “These Thy Gifts: Textile Art Inspired by Wendell Berry,” an exhibit of works by Louisville artist Joanne Weis, on Oct. 24 from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. at the Emily W. Hundley Library at St. Catharine. The public is invited to attend.

Weis crafted a collection of six stunning fiber panels in honor of the Berry Farming Program’s undergraduate degree launch. Each panel focuses on an element of sustainable agriculture, and each is paired with an excerpt from the poetry and prose of Kentucky farmer, writer, and activist Wendell Berry.

To celebrate this collection, SCC is hosting an opening reception on Thursday, Oct. 24 from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. and a gallery talk on Sunday, Nov. 3 from 3 p.m. until 5 p.m. in the Emily W. Hundley Library. Please join us for both of these events, open to the campus and community. The exhibit will be on display until early Spring 2014.

Founded in the Dominican tradition in 1931 and sponsored by the Dominican Sisters of Peace, St. Catharine College, a Catholic Dominican college inspired by its founders, welcomes all to the challenging pursuit of truth, preparing them to become critical thinkers, ethical leaders and engaged citizens.
