The Catich Gallery was created in 1985 as a memorial to the Rev. Edward M. Catich - founder of the St. Ambrose Art Department in 1939 and world-renowned calligrapher, stone incisor and artist. This intimate exhibition space was re-configured in 2002 to host contemporary art exhibits featuring the work of regional and national professional artists as well as SAU faculty and seniors graduating with honors.

MYSTERY
"Tell Me Again" Recent Work by Joseph Lappie.

EVENT
"Tell Me Again" features the recent work of Joseph Lappie, associate professor at St. Ambrose University. Lappie teaches book arts, drawing, papermaking and printmaking. The exhibition uses the travelogue presented in the Nuremberg Chronicles, the first printed book that documents a history of the world, as an impetus to explore cultural and emotional misidentification, ultimately a large game of "telephone"... passed on, again and again, striving to be better and occasionally ending up worse. Proust writes "Memory is less a process of recall and more a process of reconstruction." This difference establishes our heavens, our hells, or that in-between moment of suffering and love. That moment, often times, is incredibly thin and difficult to traverse.
