Co-curated by Dr. Amelia Gallagher, Professor in the Department of Religious Studies, Ecce Sublimia: The Art of Christianity opens on Thursday, Nov. 17 at the CAM. Featuring classical and contemporary pieces, this dynamic exhibition explores the major concepts of Western Christianity, how art is used to teach religious studies at Niagara University and includes student research. Ecce Sublimia is Latin for “Behold the Sublime.” 

Divided into four thematic sections, Ecce Sublima delves into depictions of sainthood: modern icons, the sacred feminine especially the Madonna and Child, religious vestments, and the immersive art environment of Prophet Isaiah Robinson.

From holy apparel to sculptures, stained glass to modern works on paper, this exhibition takes you on a tour of the sacred works of Niagara University and sites of worship around Western New York.
