Cairn University is hosting a collection of art from distinguished artist Jun Gueco Cruz. Located in the Connie A. Eastburn Gallery, Elioenai (Toward God are Mine Eyes) will be on display until May 8. Most pieces displayed are available for purchase.
Cruz was born in Angeles City, Philippines. Cruz is a visual artist who seeks to portray “the science of life” through massive depictions of cellular processes and human anatomy. As an artist and practicing health care provider, Cruz merges his spiritual walk with medical science into biomorphic forms of expression in his art.
Cruz’s work has been in venues like the Metropolitan Museum of Manila, the Cultural Center of the Philippines, Florence Biennale, and the GSIS Museum. He has earned several prestigious awards, including most recently the International Prize Michelangelo-Brancaccio Palace-Rome in July 2019. He is also part of the Pampanga Arts Guild, Christians In the Visual Arts (CIVA), and Circle Foundation for the Arts.
The Eastburn Gallery is open for viewing Monday-Saturday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Those interested in a group tour can contact Matthew Stemler at email@example.com.
On Tuesday, March 5, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Cairn University will host its annual Church Leaders Conference – a one-day cross-denominational conference. Keynote speaker Dr. Timothy Witmer will address the topic “Shepherding Christ’s Church.” Witmer is a former professor of Westminster Theological Seminary and current pastor of St. Stephen Reformed Church in his hometown of New Holland.
Cairn’s Church Leaders Conference, which will be held in Chatlos Chapel, is for pastors and church leaders throughout the Greater Philadelphia area.
“This conference is one of the highlights of the year for me at Cairn,” said Dr. Jonathan Master, dean of the School of Divinity. “Not only do I learn and grow by sitting under the outstanding preaching of our guests, I am also encouraged and strengthened through the warm fellowship with many pastors and friends who join us for the day.”
Cost is $20, or $25 after Feb. 5. For more information and to register, visit cairn.edu/churchleaders.
Cairn University is located at 200 Manor Ave., Langhorne.
