STEUBENVILLE, OH—James Patrick Reid, a New York City-based painter and teacher, will present a lecture titled “Art and Transformation in Christ” on Wednesday, April 12, at 7:00 p.m. in the Tony and Nina Gentile Gallery in the J.C. Williams Center at Franciscan University of Steubenville. A reception with the artist will follow.
Reid’s lecture coincides with the opening of his art exhibit, The Life of Color and Light; the Color and Light of Life, which will run through May 17, also in the Gentile Gallery.
Reid has taught at the Art Students League and the New York Academy of Art, and lectures frequently on art making, history, and appreciation. He is interested in the intersection of art and theology, and his lectures and writings often address both the theological basis for representation in visual art and the specific ways theology is communicated in sacred art.
Reid’s lecture is sponsored by the Franciscan University Fine Arts Department. For hours and times of availability for viewing Reid’s exhibition, contact the J.C. Williams Center at 740-283-3771.
