ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y., Feb. 10, 2015 — Br. David Haack, O.F.M., retired St. Bonaventure University art professor whose work is the subject of an exhibition at the university’s Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts, will give a gallery talk at 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 13.
Haack’s talk will take place in the Quick Center’s Paul and Toni Branch Gallery, which hosts his ongoing exhibition titled “Turning Left at the Intersection.” The exhibition focuses on paintings Haack has completed since his retirement from the Department of Visual and Performing Arts at St. Bonaventure in 2013.
Haack taught art history and studio art courses at the university. When he retired he set up Haack Studiolo, a room for mediation and study, in this case that of painting. An established artist for many years, Haack says he still considers himself to be learning and developing as an artist, which accounts for the name of his exhibition.
The gallery talk is free and open to the public. A reception will follow the talk.
The event will precede a 7:30 p.m. performance of Sonic Escape in the Quick Center’s Rigas Theater, a presentation of the Friends of Good Music. Tickets for the concert are available by visiting the Quick Center box office or calling (716) 375-2494.
