Schnormeier Gallery hosts Matter + Spirit

MOUNT VERNON, Ohio (August 26, 2022) — Mount Vernon Nazarene University’s Schnormeier Gallery is proud to present Matter + Spirit — A Chinese American Exhibition. This exhibit will be on display in the gallery from Aug. 29 to Oct. 14, 2022.

A First Friday reception will take place at the gallery Sept. 2, 6-9 p.m.

Matter + Spirit is composed of 55 works by 25 Chinese and American artists in a wide range of media and styles.

This exhibition is the product of a gathering of North American art professors with their Chinese counterparts in June 2018 in China sponsored by the Nagel Institute for the Study of World Christianity. Visiting artists’ enclaves and cultural sites in Beijing, Nanjing, and Shanghai, they considered issues of art, contemporary society, spirituality, and their role as culture makers, critics and seers. The works in this exhibition represent this encounter, its conversations and what was summoned by the artists’ interactions—with China, with the art scene there, and with each other.

The Schnormeier Gallery is located at 221 S. Main St., Mount Vernon, on the first floor of MVNU’s Buchwald Center. The Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, contact the Schnormeier gallery at
