In response to her yearlong observation of The Thomas McGlynn Sculpture Collection and Studio at Providence College, and informed by her conversations with collection curator Father Richard A. McAlister, O.P., New York City artist Erin Leland presents an exhibition of four sculptures with inset photographs. The sculptures—mixed-media works reminiscent of theatrical sets with requisite balconies, windows and catwalks—showcase Leland’s own poetic interpretations of the creative work and domestic lives of Dominican Catholic priest and artist Father Thomas M. McGlynn, O.P. and Father McAlister, also a lifelong artist and educator.
