NUN:  Painting the Retired Sisters of Notre Dame

Add event to my calendar

Opening reception, Thursday night April 10, 5 to 7pm

Show dates April 10 to May 23

In November and December of 2013, Takacs spent 6 very rewarding weeks painting the retired sisters of Notre Dame. Prior to her visit, Takacs had pictured something out of Sound of Music, cloistered, beautiful and wizened elderly faces beaming out from the austerity of a black headdress, with lovely bits of white showing through…on red backgrounds, for the ultimate contrast.

What she found, however, was an adventure with kind and lovely women that are anything but cloistered, who have long ago given up the headdress, but continue good works and goodness to each other and the world, until they are no longer in this world. The Notre Dame Health Center is a model for aging graceful.y with dignity, and painting these women was Takacs' honor and pleasure.

More on Takacs' work, here: Judy Takacs Paints People

The exhibit may be viewed during library hours: Monday-Thursday from 8am to 10pm; Friday from 8am to 6pm; Saturday from 11am to 3pm; Sunday from 1-10pm.

Notre Dame College is located at 4545 College Road in South Euclid. For further information contact Karen Zoller at 216.373.5267 or at kzoller@ndc.edu.
