Sheila E. Lichacz, a Panamanian artist, who has survived 15 brain surgeries to remove 30 tumors (both malignant and benign), will unveil her first exhibit in years, a 16-piece art exhibit “Ancient Vessels of Love,” at the Archbishop John C. Favalora Archive & Museum at St. Thomas University.

Lichacz, known for her unique style of incorporating pre-Columbian pottery shards and shells found in her native Monagrillo, Panama, creates montages, oils, pastels and sculptures. Six of her works are on permanent display at the Holy Shrine of Cana in Galilee. Another, “Blood Money – 30 Pieces of Silver,” is the only work by a living artist that hangs in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. Her art is also on display in the Vatican Museum of Contemporary Religious Art.

The opening reception, which is free and open to student, faculty, staff and the general public, will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 14, at 2 p.m.

The exhibit, on display through Dec. 13, is free and open to the public.
