A collection of artwork by Cecilia Lieder, Adolf Dehn, and Clara Gardner Mairs. More specifically, this collection is intended to establish a common thread between the works of Lieder, Dehn, and Mairs by displaying pieces that depict an overall theme of flowers or nature. The works of Adolf Dehn and Clara Gardner Mairs have been well-covered previously, but this digital collection strives to bring attention to certain pieces from these artists that may not be featured as often as others and relate to nature.
At the heart of St. Kate's are active, creative, and socially engaged women. Eight strong, local artists have captured these values in their work, communicating what it means to be a Katie. This exhibit proudly offers these underrepresented artists a chance to continue shaping the campus and community of St. Kate's.
This exhibit showcases the gems of St. Kate's: influential local women artists and their work. Clara Mairs, Cecilia Lieder, Nancy Randall, Gemma Rossini Cullen, Sr. Mary Anne Catherine, Sr. Joanne Emmer CSJ, Corita Kent, and Jo Summonick are presented. The "gems" of St. Kate's are works that represent the values of faith, leadership, social teaching and inspiration, characteristic of the institution and its academic mission. Featured pieces are by artists working along these themes within specific subject matter: circus performance, flora, flight, and faith.
