Local Artist's Exhibit Continues at AMU Library

csSaint-Michael-300There's still time to see a special exhibition of works by prominent local artist Cornelius Sullivan on the second floor of the Ave Maria University Canizaro Library. The exhibit is open to all at no charge.

cs125The exhibitions includes paintings, sculpture and drawings by Mr. Sullivan, who doesn't reside in Ave Maria but he has more or less adopted the town as his home and through his frequent visits is well-known to many residents.

 Mr. Sullivan recently taught a course with AMU theology professor Michael Waldstein on "Theology of the Body," which is based on the integrated vision of the human person developed by Pope St. John Paul II, and most of the art on display reflects that theme. Right, the oil painting St. Michael the Archangel, recalling a vision of Pope St. Gregory the Great in 590: the princely angel appearing atop Hadrian's Tomb in Rome, and sheathing his sword, to signal the end of the first plague pandemic in that city.

The exhibit runs until May 13 and more information about the exhibit, the artist, and his work can be found at his website
