“Wilt Chamberlain, Boston Celtics at Philadelphia” by Walter Iooss, 24 inches by 20 inches, photograph. Donor Joseph J. Garibaldi IV. Villanova’s essential contributions to and participation in the region’s vibrant artistic life. Each donated work of art broadens the Gallery’s ability to make art an integral component of a Villanova University education. Gallery Director and Curator Rev. Richard G. Cannuli, OSA, emphasizes the importance of the donor-gallery relationship: “Like so many galleries and museums, our budget for acquisitions is limited. When someone entrusts a piece of art into our care, it is a gift to the entire community. We are honored to receive and safeguard artwork that has held special meaning for a donor. When we put together an exhibit from our collection, we strive to place the donated work in context for our on- and off-campus audiences, so that it can have maximum impact on the viewer.” Notable recent acquisitions included in “A Slice of Art” are “Saint Maximilian Kolbe” and “Cardinal John Henry Newman,” a pair of superb wood carved panels by Robert F. McGovern, a distinguished painter, printmaker, and sculptor from Narberth, PA. McGovern’s works and designs, including wood, bronze, and lead reliefs; carved oak and basswood murals; statues, altar furniture, lecterns, processional crosses, entranceways, and altarpieces, are in places of worship throughout the Philadelphia area and across the nation. The panels are the gift of Msgr. Francis A. Carbine, who has been a patron of the Gallery since 2005. Eagerly anticipated for debut is “St. Nicholas of Tolentino” (artist unknown), an oil painting dating to 16th or 17th century colonial Mexico. St. Nicholas of Tolentino (1245-1305) was an Augustinian friar renowned for his humility, gentleness, and charity. He spent his adult life in Tolentino, Italy, ministering to the sick and needy. He was known throughout the city as a miracle worker. In the painting “St. Nicholas of Tolentino,” St. Nicholas is kneeling in front of a crucifix with a skull in his left hand and a chain over his left shoulder. When the painting was donated in 2016 by Daniel H. and Nancy R. Lori, the Loris knew it was in need of restoration—and that Fr. Cannuli was the right shepherd for the process. Fr. Cannuli enlisted the help of Steven B. Erisoty, a Philadelphia-area art conservator, to painstakingly strip away the hundreds of years’ worth of varnish, oil, and dirt that covered the painting. The process has resulted in an image that has been both clarified and rejuvenated. “A Slice of Art” will also include three photographs by Roman Catholic Cardinal Prospero Grech, OSA, of Malta. Cardinal Grech, who identifies himself as theologian, teacher, writer, researcher, and mentor, enjoyed a well-received solo exhibit in the Art Gallery in 2015. After the exhibit, he donated all of the displayed photographs to the Gallery. Cardinal Grech says he strives for beauty in imagery that balances color, light and timing, with his favorite subject matter being people and architecture. A full list of works and artists included in “A Slice of Art” is available upon request by contacting the Villanova Art Gallery at 610-519-4612.
