The exhibition is comprised of text-based paintings, created from ancient scripture, advertising, sermons, and popular music that artist Daniel Marosi collected during the pandemic. Investigating their implicit authority, Marosi paints short phrases in multiple layers, allowing them to become gestural manifestations of phenomena existing beyond logic. The selection of canvas and works on paper trace the origins of Marosi’s observations of sacred texts and the contemporary relevance of signs signifying nothing.

Dainy Tapia is a cultural practitioner based in Miami. She is the creator and curator of ArtSeen365: a platform dedicated to promoting the visual arts in Miami, South Florida, and beyond by creating and publishing original digital content. Tapia collaborates with several art institutions in South Florida, including the Doral Contemporary Art Museum, the Bass Museum of Art, and the Women Artists Archive Miami (WAAM). She has an independent curatorial art practice and collaborates with artists to support their practices and projects.

Psychotherapist and visual artist Marilyn Valiente received her Master of Mental Health Counseling degree from St. Thomas University in 1989. This will be her second time exhibiting her work at STU. 

“Art making, for me, is a healing inner process. It is intuitive and spontaneous,” said Marilyn. “I seek to open the locked door of the unconscious through a play of lines, marks and colors.” 

David S. Valiente is a prominent psychologist and sculptor who received his Master of Science in Marriage & Family Therapy degree from STU in 1989. This will be his first time exhibiting at his alma mater. 

“I am a psychologist/sculptor who has integrated my psychology background with the themes of my sculptures,” said David.  

Both artists have extensively showcased their works of art in the United States and abroad.

Celebrate 'Pope of the Eucharist' at his namesake parish

Tuesday, Aug 16, 2022 at 5:00 PM - English

St. Pius X Catholic Church is celebrating the feast day of their patron saint, St. Pius X and the Eucharistic Revival that began on Corpus Christi Sunday and continues until July 2024.

The celebration will begin with parishioners praying the Novena to St. Pius X from August 12 through Aug. 20 during the morning Mass.

On Tuesday, Aug.16, 2022, parishioners will gather in the parish hall at 5 p.m. for an evening of fun, fellowship, and some surprises. The evening will begin by taking a 'pope quiz' to find out how much parishioners know about Saint Pius X. Following the quiz, Saint Pius X will make a special appearance to tell everyone a little about his early life, his time as pope, what was happening in the Church during his time, and some of his achievements.

The evening will close with the parishioners listening to the eucharistic miracle that took place in the time of his papacy. This is in honor of St. Pius X who was called the Pope of the Eucharist, and because we are in the beginning of the Eucharistic Revival, reminding Catholics of the Real Presence in the Eucharist.

The week concludes with Archbishop Thomas Wenski celebrating Mass on Saturday, Aug. 20, 2022 at 4:30 p.m.

An elegant evening of fine cuisine and spectacular entertainment by Marcel Raza and pianist Leonard Reina will follow Mass. It will be an evening to remember. Tickets to the dinner are $30/person.
