In the spring of 2014, a small band of cathedral members took on the task of improving the south hall of the cathedral facility to serve as a primary exhibition space. They then established a regular schedule of art shows, and Gallery South was born. Since then, Gallery South has featured exhibits covering a wide range of subjects and media. More than 100 local artists have participated – including several with strong national reputations. The opening reception for each show regularly brings in scores of visitors. Gallery South firmly establishes the cathedral as a valued and unique presence in the region’s fine arts scene. Since its mission is to create shows that are a gift to the community, there never are any application fees nor are commissions takes on any sales. For more information, contact Mike Phillips.

Out of the Shadows

Dr. Anna Miller, who curated this exhibit, will be speaking at a Sunday Theology Adult Forum on December 15 at 11:30 AM in the Forum Room. Dr. Miller is the director of the Institute for Spirituality and Social Justice at Xavier University.

 

We are pleased to present in Gallery South a collection of art offering a rarely seen perspective on the role of women in the early Christian church.  The “Out of the Shadows” exhibit features photographs of frescoes, sarcophagi, and mosaics from Rome that portray women playing active leadership roles in the first few centuries of Christian history. Women are depicted in prayer and prophecy, as disciples and teachers, breaking bread in ritual meals, and taking on other high-profile roles previously thought to be reserved for men alone. One piece even depicts a woman named as “episcopa”—bishop.

 

This is only the second time that this collection has been displayed in the United States.
