Challenge Yourself: A Jewish Papercut Artist @ Carondelet Center
Oct 24 – Nov 29 all-day

Artist Statement:

Deep Pit by Aaron Silver

In my work, I interpret contemporary experience and political events through papercuts that are rigorous, beautiful, and thought-provoking. This is a new direction for Jewish papercuts, which traditionally served primarily to embellish holiday and life cycle events.

My papercuts often spring forth from texts and include text in them, and with them I seek to question and reinforce meanings, to comfort and to challenge the viewer, and to evoke a desire to look, think, and discover.

In papercutting, everything you see is defined by the absence around it, something that is true, but often unacknowledged, in our own lived experience.

 

Aaron will be part of the Holy Hospitality: Arts as the Doorway to the Sacred program in October and November.

O Antiphons: Advent Names of God @ Carondelet Center
Dec 1 – Dec 31 all-day

Seven short verses are sung before the Magnificat during the Evening Prayer of the Church on the seven days before the vigil of Christmas. Each begins with the exclamation “O.” Each ends with a plea for the Messiah to come.

These O Antiphons, as they are known, were composed in the seventh or eighth century when monks put together texts from the Old Testament that looked forward to the coming of our salvation. They form a rich mosaic of scriptural images, and became very popular in the Middle Ages.

Holmberg’s images invite a transformation from the traditional O Antiphons into the context of evolutionary cosmology.  Poetry by Joan Mitchell, CSJ, complements these images celebrating the incarnation of God as one of us in Jesus

 

Artist:

Ansgar Holmberg, CSJ, studied with renowned liturgical artist Ade Bethune.  Holmberg’s color-saturated works are more reminiscent of folk art than conventional religious images. Her art arises from her own spiritual journey and life changes.  Her interpretations of themes are not fixed in the manner of icons, but ever changing through time.
