Snake Plant”, Kristin Pluhacek, pastel, 2021

Sample some of the best of Midwest art this summer at the 2021 Annual Cathedral Artists Invitational. Eighty works by Midwest artists are currently on view in the Sunderland Gallery, at St. Cecilia’s Cathedral Cultural Center. The exhibit, a highlight of the Cathedral Arts Project, opened to the public with an artist’s reception on July 2, but for those who missed it, there is a second Artist’s Reception on Friday, August 6, from 5 to 7 p.m.

The forty artists, hailing from Nebraska, Iowa and South Dakota, provide a pastiche of style and medium. Be sure to catch work by Judith Anthony Johnston, Bart Vargas, John Dennison, Stephen Cornelius Roberts, Paula Wallace, Linda Garcia and Troy Muller, among several others.

The Cultural Center is located at 3900 Webster Street, just east of St. Cecilia’s Cathedral. Regular gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday, noon to 4 p.m. The Invitational runs through August 15. For further information, visit
