A fall exhibition featuring paintings by Janet McKenzie at The Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts at St. Bonaventure University brings a new and diverse view of women and religion.
“Holiness and the Feminine Spirit – the Art of Janet McKenzie” is on display in the Theater Atrium and the Front Gallery of the Quick Center for the Arts. The exhibition will be open through Dec. 2.
McKenzie explores diversity, children and symbolic imagery in her work. In her paintings, McKenzie pays tribute to women as sacred individuals, leaders for positive change, and mothers.
On Monday, Oct. 22, McKenzie will visit campus for a gallery talk at 4 p.m., followed by dessert with the artist at 7 p.m. The gallery talk will feature a unique format with St. Bonaventure President Emeritus Sr. Margaret Carney, O.S.F., and her sister, Sr. Sheila Carney, R.S.M., interviewing McKenzie. Both events will be held at the Quick Center and are free and open to the public.
Reproductions of McKenzie’s art are regularly carried in demonstrations and marches across the United States as visual testaments in support of racial equality and as a voice against prejudice, women’s rights and the LGBTQ community.
McKenzie has received many awards throughout her career and most recently was the subject of “The Divine Journey: a Painter’s Mission,” a short documentary about the artist’s work and the creation of a commission for Memorial Church at Harvard University. Originally from New York City, McKenzie now lives and works in northeast Vermont. Learn more about the artist via her website, www.janetmckenzie.com.
Museum admission is free and open to the public year round. Regular gallery hours are noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For more information about events at the Quick Center, visit www.sbu.edu/QuickCenter.
