Cloister Gallery

With a new exhibit each month, the Cloister Gallery in Reynolds Hall is a perfect venue for artists and a treasure for Cathedral regulars. Jeanne Roth has chaired this effort since its inception and launched the careers of many painters and photographers. Each exhibit opens with a reception that brings new faces to our campus.

The gallery is open 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sundays.

Denise Liebl: Dwellings

Detail from artwork by Denise Liebl

The Cloister Gallery welcomes Houston artist Denise Liebl for a show, "Dwellings," through September 28. An opening artist's reception will be held Friday, September 12, from 6–8 p.m.

In "Dwellings," Liebl juxtaposes mass produced and natural objects in this series of large-scale still lifes. Some are rendered in oil on panel, while many are in watercolor. Cast in direct light, the subjects of Liebl’s work create shadows that often become more important and revealing than the objects themselves. With distortion comes clarity: with contrast comes beauty.
