Two artists from Boston College are exhibiting their different interpretations of the crucifixion in the display cases at the Flora Lamson Hewlett Library, March 3 through May 31, 2010.
John Steczynski, who received a BA in Studio Art at Notre Dame and an MFA from Yale, has exhibited religious drawings across the United States over the past 50 years. The particular focus of these prints is to evoke emotions based on different images of the crucifixion.
Aileen Callahan's drawings are more abstract representations of elements of the crucifixion. These prints also work as visual prayers. Callahan received a MA as Spellman Scholar from Graduate School for the Arts, Florence, Italy-Dominican University, and a MFA from Boston University.
