Brother Ignatius Feaver, artist, educator, Capuchin Franciscan Friar and a member of the Regis program staff for many years, will invite patrons of the Art Gallery of Ontario to take a meditative look at the prints and drawings of 19th century French artist, Charles Marie Dulac. Patrons will join Ignatius to explore the relationship between art and spirituality and reflect on the mystical in Dulac’s series of colour lithographs “The Canticle of Creatures”; nine original prints of exquisite beauty and mystery expressing the spirituality of St. Francis of Assisi. Dulac’s intent as an artist was to invite the viewer, through his art, to a place of contemplating the mystery of creation and to focus on what is being evoked within.
Entitled, "Art and Meditation," the seminar is offered in the AGO's "Close Encounter Series" at the Marvin Gelber Print & Drawing Study Centre, Art Gallery of Ontario, 317 Dundas St. West, Toronto, M5T 1G4.
