• Vessels and Channels

    As he walked through his current solo exhibition “Simon Toparovsky: Vessels and Channels” at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, artist Simon Toparovsky was inspired to do a bit of rock pile rearranging in one of the three side chapels that hold his art installations.

     

     

  • The illuminated culture of giving

    All in all, modern day customs of gift giving have their origins in practices from the Middle Ages through the Renaissance, explains Christine Sciacca, curator of manuscripts at the J. Paul Getty Museum and curator of the newly opened exhibition “Give and Ye Shall Receive: Gift Giving in the Middle Ages.”

  • How a modern DC art exhibit is learning womanhood from Mary

    A new art exhibit in Washington, D.C., hopes to revive a sense of womanhood exemplified in the Virgin Mary, as depicted by Renaissance and Baroque artists.

  • Dido and Aeneas/Bluebeard’s Castle at the L.A. Opera

    I’m enthralled by the late opera singer Maria Callas — her voice, her life. I also have a thing for the somewhat obscure German contralto Emmi Leisner (1885-1958). But perhaps like many of us, I’ve always thought of opera as a high-brow version of the musical, which, with the exception of Fred Astaire movies, I pretty much can’t stand.

  • ‘A Spectacular Triumph’

    Breathtaking, inspiring and artistically engaging, “Spectacular Rubens: the Triumph of the Eucharist,” a new exhibition at the J. Paul Getty Museum, features the work of master artist Peter Paul Rubens told in both elaborate oil sketches and monumental original tapestries woven in the early 1620s for a Franciscan convent in Spain.

  • Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden: Metaphors for our lives

    Recently I made a field trip to a gem of a spot that should be better known: the Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden in Claremont. 

  • ‘Faith & Hope Beyond Prison Walls’ honors artists

    The eighth annual Faith & Hope Beyond Prison Walls art show in downtown Los Angeles honored acclaimed artist John August Swanson, along with Niko Galvez, Lucinda Thomas and the “Galindro Girls.”

  • ‘Art of the incarcerated’ show set Oct. 4 at Homeboy

    A variety of artwork from current and former prisoners will be featured at the “Art of the Incarcerated” exhibit, to be held Oct. 4 (11 a.m.-5 p.m.) at Homeboy Industries, Los Angeles.

  • The harmony and order of bees

    Earlier this year, I visited Madonna House: the lay community in Combermere, Ontario, founded by the late Russian emigré and mystic Catherine Doherty.

  • Country music in pictures: Genuine feelings amid the artifice

    I’m a country western fan from way back. In the ’70s, I hitchhiked to Nashville to eat at Merchants Lunch, troll the record bins at Ernest Tubbs’, and drink at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, the iconic bar in which Willie Nelson reputedly wrote “Crazy.”

In our time

Archbishop José H. Gomez

As I write, I’ve just read the sad news that 90 Christians have been kidnapped from two villages in Syria. Of course we were all shocked earlier this month by the news that 21 Coptic Christians were executed in Syria — killed, as Pope Francis said, “for the mere fact of being Christians.”
