Dominican Center at Marywood  is pleased to show the work of two Michigan artists from November 1to December 29, 2011. The Marywood Gallery is a space reserved by Dominican Center for the purpose of exhibiting art created by West Michigan Artists. The gallery is located in the ground floor main lobby of the Dominican Center at Marywood.

Sister Francetta McCann, OP, is the curator of the Marywood Art Gallery. She contacts selected artists and works with them to arrange the showing of work produced by Michigan artists. The show changes every two months, giving several local artists a venue to display and sell their artwork each year. During the months of November and December, we are pleased to present the works of Robyn Bomhof  and Carol Radecki.

Robyn Bomhof creates lithographs and works with oils. She holds an MFA in painting from Western Michigan University and has shown both locally and nationally. Participating in every ArtPrize competition to date, she has also been a venue curator, site manager and volunteer. Currently a docent at the Grand Rapids Art Museum (GRAM), she looks forward to continual personal and professional opportunities to share her passion for art. 

Carol Radecki is a Grand Rapids native and holds a BA in art from Aquinas College. She taught middle school art classes for several years, and then took some time out to raise her family. In the mid-1980s, she returned to Aquinas with a desire to rekindle the artistic flame that burned within. She found the guidance of Aquinas art professor Larry Blovits to be the foundation of her artistic growth. As a member of the Rivertown Artist Guild, she had the opportunity to show and sell many paintings in area galleries and libraries.

A reception, free and open to the public, will be held for the featured artists on November 19, 2011 from 12:00 noon until 4:00 p.m. Please join us as we celebrate the arts with these two gifted artists.

The Marywood Gallery is open to the public daily:

  • Monday-Thursday 8 a.m. – 9 p.m.
  • Friday 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.
  • Saturday and Sunday 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.
