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.

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).

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.

Online evening prayer

Tuesday, Aug 23, 2022 at 8:00 PM - English

The North American Vocation Team (NAVT) of the School Sisters of Notre Dame (SSND) invites young adults ages 18 and older to online evening prayer on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 8 p.m. EST (7 p.m. CST). Upcoming dates for evening prayer will be April 26, May 24 and June 28, 2022.

More information and registration for the Zoom links is available at ssnd.org/events/.

The monthly online evening prayer was started in 2020 in response to the need to adapt outreach efforts due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on the Liturgy of the Hours, the prayer time typically lasts about an hour and includes scripture, psalm responses, the Magnificat, personal and communal intercessory prayers as well as time for faith sharing.  

The NAVT accompanies young adults as they discern God’s call while informing them about the mission and charism of SSND, an international community of almost 2,100 women religious founded in Bavaria in 1833. The SSND mission is to proclaim the Good News, directing their entire lives toward that oneness for which Jesus Christ was sent. Continuing the sacred work of their foundress, Blessed Theresa of Jesus Gerhardinger, School Sisters of Notre Dame transform the world through education, giving special emphasis to women, young people and those who are poor.
