.- Artists in sacred art, traditional painting and architecture will discuss the guiding principles of Catholic art and its role in the Church at a June 28 special event being hosted by Thomas More College of Liberal Arts in Merrimack, New Hampshire.

The college says the event brings together “some of the most faithful and talented Catholic artists in our time.”

Portrait painter Henry Wingate, painter and architect David Mayernick, and Thomas More College iconographer David Clayton will take part in the discussion. They will present their own work and explain how it helps draw the viewer into a deeper appreciation of the beauty, harmony and order of the universe, and how this helps prepare them to be open to reason and the power of divine grace.

“The evening’s presentations will be conversational, and will be of interest to all who appreciate beautiful art,” organizers said.

The event is titled “Beauty and the Renewal of Culture: An Evening with Catholic Artists.” It is free and open to the public.

Fr. Thomas Kocik, author of two liturgy-related books and contributor to the New Liturgical Movement website, will chair the discussion.

The event begins at 7 p.m. in the college library’s Helm Room. Solemn Vespers and the Vigil Mass for the Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul will be offered at 5 p.m., followed by a light dinner in the college cafeteria and brief tours of the Way of Beauty Atelier studios in the college library.
