Page from My Sketchbook: James Rosen
T. Renner, "Page from My Sketchbook: James Rosen," 2010, markers on paper, 5.5" x 8.5".
This summer I was lucky enough to be given a behind-the-scenes tour of the Museum of Contemporary Religious Art by Fr. Terry Dempsey. At the time, Fr. Dempsey was deciding which pieces would be included in a retrospective exhibit of the work of James Rosen.
That exhibition, James Rosen: the Artist and the Capable Observer, is now open at MOCRA, located on the campus of Saint Louis University, through December 12.
I was very happy to see that Fr. Dempsey used "Trepassey: Triangles & Parallelograms," which I sketched on my visit, as one of the images on the exhibit brochure.
