Artist Helen Seigl (1924-2009) a native of Austria, lived in Vienna during the Nazi Annexation, World War II and post-war Soviet occupation. She was educated at the Academy of Applied Arts in Vienna, and went on to become internationally renowned as a printmaker and illustrator. Her woodcuts, lithographs and etchings are in public and private collections throughout the world, including the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the National Gallery in Washington, DC. Her art reflects the triumph of faith over extreme adversity.

Artist Shushi  Yoshinaga, a native of Hirosaki, Japan is Associate Professor in the College of Media Arts and Design, Drexel University.  Her design research interest is in the visual translation of fundamental cultural ideas, focusing on gesture, form and type. She is designing an ongoing series of visual compositions based on Baroque liturgical music. In 2009 twenty seven of her artworks were sent to China for a solo exhibit at the University City Art Museum of the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts and are now in the museum’s permanent collection.  She has taught and lectured in China, and Japan, given interviews in Japan and Argentina, and has presented and published papers in the US and Italy. She was educated in Boston, Philadelphia and Basel, Switzerland.

The Rev. Richard Cannuli, an Augustinian priest,  Professor of Fine Arts, Villanova University, Director and Curator of the University Art Collection, and a certifies Liturgical Design Consultant  has recently returned from  a European  exhibition of some of his many works, including Italy, Czech Republic and Poland.  A focus of his work has been in iconography of 15th century Russian Byzantine style. He is a world-renowned designer and maker of liturgical vestments, and also a designer of stained glass windows, mosaics and church furniture for churches in Italy and the United States. He is also a master watercolorist, with exhibitions in the North and South Americas, Europe and Asia.

Concert - March 3rd at 4 pm – Inspired by the musical concept of “Pictures at an Exhibition”, the concert will feature ‘musical canvasses’ of  Mendelssohn,  Brahms (the famous Alto Rhapsody),  Leos Janacek (Otcenas – The Lord’s Prayer), Faure, and  Vierne ( Kyrie from the mass for two organs and choir, a truly sonic experience). Two choirs and the soloists will be accompanied by an orchestra of strings, harp, and organ, conducted by Gordon Turk, music director of St. Mary’s. This program has been created to compliment the visual art and to offer an opportunity to experience our faith, through the creative arts.  A free-will offering will be received.
