Modern Sacred: The Saint John’s Bible and Selections from the Permanent Collection

The Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery invites you to Modern Sacred: The Saint John’s Bible and Selections from the Permanent Collection, an exhibition showcasing permanent collection highlights alongside the Heritage Edition Volume “Gospels and Acts” from The Saint John’s Bible, the first handwritten and illuminated Bible commissioned by a Benedictine monastery since the invention of the printing press in the 15th century.

Exhibition Available for Viewing: Aug. 28-Sept. 29, 2017

Opening Reception: Friday, Sept. 1, 2017 | 6-9 p.m.

All works in this exhibition are by artists who sought new forms, gestures, and materials to make manifest the Christian imagination. Modern Sacred offers a rare opportunity to examine how contemporary art explores, illuminates and represents the sacred.

There will be opportunities for viewers to turn each page of the Heritage Edition of the Bible witnessing firsthand the beauty of traditional and contemporary print and illumination in action. Framed prints from other volumes of the Heritage Edition will also extend viewer’s knowledge and experience of this intricate combination of scripture and art. The project of The Saint John’s Bible has been called “one of the extraordinary undertakings of our time,” by Smithsonian Magazine.

Select artists from the university’s permanent collection include several of the Art Department’s early founding faculty — Lyle Novinski, Heri Bert Bartscht and the Rev. Phillip Szeitz (all three professors emeritus) — as well as Cistercians Fr. Ignatius Peacher and Fr. Damian Szodenyi of Cistercian Abbey of Our Lady of Dallas, and well-known Californian artist, nun and educator Sister Mary Corita Kent.

Marc Chagall: Intersecting Traditions opens Feb. 4 at UD’s Haggerty Gallery

Chagall Jacobs Ladder Hi Res (002)

By: The University of Dallas 

“Since my early youth I have been fascinated by the Bible. It has always seemed to me and it seems to me still that it is the greatest source of poetry of all time. Since then I have sought this reflection in life and in art. The Bible is like an echo of nature and this secret I have tried to transmit.” -Marc Chagall

 

Don’t miss Marc Chagall: Intersecting Traditions a free exhibition of hand-colored etchings from Chagall’s “The Bible” series at the University of Dallas’ Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery from Feb 4-April 22, 2016.
