Good Shepherd Gallery exhibit features works of Catholic teachers

Good Shepherd Gallery has a new exhibit running through December 16. That old maxim, “Those who can, do; those who can’t, teach,” is being challenged through an exhibit at Good Shepherd Gallery titled, “Those Who Teach CAN!” The art show opened on Saturday, November 25 at Good Shepherd Gallery in Ferguson, Missouri. It runs through December 16. Seventeen art teachers from St. Louis Catholic Schools are exhibiting their own works in the show. The mixed media exhibit allows viewers to experience a full range of emotion. The artwork wakes us up to beauty, challenges us to venture beyond our comfort zone, gives a promise of hope for environmental healing, and lets us use our own imaginations to interpret the meaning of whimsy. The following 17 art teachers from St. Louis Catholic Schools have their artworks on display:

Jennifer Bardgett, St. Clement
Sarah Bogaski, Sacred Heart – Florissant
Tony Bodnar, Trinity Catholic High School
Lisa Carswell, Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School
MaryJo Clark, Cor Jesu Academy
Cindy Cooney, Christ Prince of Peace
Tom Hunt, Nerinx Hall
Matthew Kleinberg, St. Mary’s High School
Laurie Kohler, DeSmet Jesuit High School
Ashley May , Nerinx Hall
Lisa Payne, Ursuline Academy
Pashya Spellman, Rosati-Kain High School
