The diverse works of six contemporary
Dominican artists from around the world were on
show in Adelaide last month.
The exhibition, held at Cabra Dominican College,
featured original works by Sisters Sheila Flynn
OP, Mary Horn OP, Rosemary Yelland OP and
Fathers Cristóbal Torres OP, Kim En Joong OP
and Maurice Keating OP.
Throughout their history, many Dominican nuns,
sisters, friars and members of the laity have been
involved in the arts. All over the world, artworks
by Dominicans can be found in churches,
monasteries, Dominican institutions and places
where Dominicans live and work.
The contemporary artists featured in the
Adelaide exhibition use a variety of mediums and
techniques in their work and cover many different
themes. Some works depicted Dominican saints
and those beatified, while others covered topics
and themes around Dominican prayer and
spirituality. Others captured landscapes, portraits
and abstract works on canvas, in sculpture or
The Adelaide event was part of a five-city
Australian tour by the artists and was based on
an exhibition held at the world headquarters for
the Dominican Friars in Santa Sabina, Rome to
mark the 800th anniversary of the approval of the
naming of the Order.
Another art exhibition will be held at Our Lady of
the Sacred Heart College on March 4 and 11 as
part of the Adelaide Fringe.
Art@Heart will showcase the best of students’
artworks, with a highlight being pieces by Uyen
Le Nguyen, Thanh Vy Pham and Maddison
McGonigle-Dearman. These students have been
invited to showcase their works in the prestigious
SACE Art Show, being held in Light Square
Gallery at the Adelaide College of the Arts from
March 18 until May 3.

It was a Valentine’s Day with a
difference for residents at Southern
Cross Care’s Mt Carmel home last
Not only did they all get to worship
together at the Mt Carmel Catholic
Church next door, but they were
also able to enjoy a fish and chips
lunch while sitting in the pews.
The unplanned activity eventuated
after a gas leak in front of the
residential facility in Torrens Road,
Rosewater, forced the evacuation of
the 54 residents.
Father Kevin Horsell, who
celebrated Mass for the larger than
usual congregation, said some of
the residents were thrilled to be
having a “picnic” in the church, but
were confused as the event wasn’t
listed on the “social calendar”.
Manager of the home Irene
Urbanski said the outing, which
coincided with Valentine’s Day on
February 14, was a big hit although
after a couple of hours they were
happy to be able to return to their
