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.
In November, the Cloister Gallery welcomes artist April Murphy, who will exhibit her brightly colored acrylic paintings of animals and other quirky subject matter throughout the month. An artist's reception will be held Friday, November 7, from 6–8 p.m.
Murphy injects whimsy and humor into her paintings, hoping to bring smiles and lighten moods. "I adore animals and always have some array of dogs and cats underfoot," she said. "They are a constant source of inspiration and keep me laughing all the time. I love injecting humor and whimsy into my work … and it is such a thrill when I see others smiling or even laughing out loud."
