Erased from the Landscape: The Hidden Lives of Cloistered Nuns
Come join us at 6:30pm on the third floor atrium in the CdC for a gallery tour followed by a conversation with artist and oral historian Abbie Reese, creator of the traveling multimedia gallery exhibition titled, “Erased from the Landscape: The Hidden Lives of Cloistered Nuns,” will consist of photographs accompanied by audio clips edited from a series of oral history interviews.

“To be an artist is to be a teacher, a builder of bridges, a healer. As a photographer and storyteller, Abbie’s work has the ability to peer into people's lives. She is not a voyeur, as is often the case with photographers desiring to be 'in vogue', but one who cares about people and desires to bring others to a broader understanding of the human condition. The model the nuns present to us, while not something that everyone would want to follow themselves, can inspire anyone interested in contributing to the world in their own way. Their honesty, and their conviction should appeal to anyone. Abbie is doing a remarkable job helping to tell their stories." -Steve Rowland
