Joseph O'Connell: A Retrospective of an Artist's Life

Please note: due to weather conditions, the opening reception scheduled for 2/21 has been postponed until Saturday, February 22, 5-8 p.m. with a gallery talk beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Joseph O'Connell
1927-1995

Joe, as everyone called him, managed to work in every medium an artist is allowed: stone and wood carving, welding steel, forged iron, drawing, engraving, clay, photography and paint. The retrospective offers visitors a glimpse of a small portion of what he produced over a career that lasted just 43 years.  

Joe spent twelve years working as artist-in-residence for the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University and his work can be found throughout the Benedicta Arts Center, Mary Hall Commons, Clemens Library and in Saint Benedict's Monastery Gathering Place.

For more in-depth look at his life and work, visit the CSB/SJU Archives.
