Congratulations to Ramona Convent Secondary School senior and AP Studio Art student Samantha Gonzalez whose artwork has been selected to be featured in La Virgen art exhibit at Picture THIS Gallery in Long Beach. The following is a description of the exhibit:
“The Virgin Mary is known by many titles (Blessed Mother, Virgin, Madonna, Our Lady), epithets (Star of the Sea, Queen of Heaven, Cause of Our Joy), invocations (Theotokos, Panagia, Mother of Mercy) and other names (Our Lady of Loreto, Our Lady of Guadalupe). All of these titles refer to the same individual named Mary, and are used variably by Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, and some Anglicans. A few of the titles given to Mary are dogmatic in nature. Many other titles are poetic or allegorical and have lesser or no canonical status, but which form part of popular piety, with varying degrees of acceptance by the clergy. Yet more titles refer to depictions of Mary in the history of art. Various artists come together to exhibit their own interpretation of La Virgen, the Virgin Mary. The exhibit is on display now through December 29th.”
