“Arts exist at the heart of faith: faith is not a concrete experience,
so we need arts to express our faith.

Janet Krehbiel Pieracci Art Opening
   “Making Camino: Reflections on the Journey”  

We are honored to display the work of artist Janet Krehbiel Pieracci in the Loggia from Thursday, April 21 to Sunday, July 31. Ms. Pieracci's sketches and paintings reflect her journey on the Camino de Santiago, pilgrimage routes in Europe that lead to the shrine of the apostle St. James the Great in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia in northwestern Spain.

The title of one of her pieces, Peregina, translates to “pilgrim (female)” and is based on the steel plate sculptures of male and female pilgrims by the artist Vincent Galbete. The colorful names written on the female figure are the names of people Ms. Pieracci wrote on a prayer list that she carried with her along her walk. The list has more than 500 names, including 400 names of the women participants and staff at Deborah's Place, which supports women experiencing homelessness. Ms. Pieracci credits these women with helping her through her pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago.

All are invited to a reception for the artist on Friday, April 29 at 6:30 p.m. in Anderson Hall. We hope to see you thereā€”and, if you can't make it that evening, we hope you'll stop by the Loggia to see this moving collection of work.
