Sinsinawa Dominican Receives Fra Angelico Award

Joeann DaleyRACINE, WI – August 13, 2007--- During the annual meeting of the Dominican Institute for the Arts, Dominican Sister of Sinsinawa Joeann Daley, OP was named the recipient of the 2007 Fra Angelico Award. This is the highest honor DIA bestows on an artist.  The criteria requires that the artist’s work is of the highest quality in his or her discipline; is highly honored in artistic circles and the artist exemplifies the ideals of the DIA.

DIA board president Lucianne Siers, OP (Grand Rapids) said, “Joeann’s work is playful and narrative and is often filled with familiar images of saints, mythological figures as well as iconic sculptural elements.”  Joeann has worked in etchings, monoprints, lithographs, pasted prints, mixed media and photo collages.

In accepting the award Joeann said, "The Dominican Institute for the Arts and its annual awarding of the Fra Angelico award, is a powerful testimony to the importance of the arts and the artist in our Dominican Family. With a heart filled with gratitude, I am honored and humbled to receive this award."

Joeann holds an MFA from Rosary Graduate School in Florence, Italy. She has been the
recruitment director and coordinator of Studio Art at Rosary Graduate School, in Florence. Among her many ministries, she served as Co-chair of Montana Arts Advocacy and President of Montana Art Gallery Association. She was the founder and first Director of Copper Village Museum and Art Center, Anaconda, Montana.

A life long teacher and leader, Joeann also served as provincial council for the western province of the Dominican Sisters of Sinsinawa.

Joeann established the exhibit:  Samuel Mazzuchelli, OP, Tracing A Journey, in Sinsinawa, for which the State Historical Society of Wisconsin awarded her the “Organizational Award of Merit” She currently serves as the curator for the Susan S. Frackelton collection for the Sinsinawa Dominicans.

“Her work is a mixture of time and space; it transcends time; it is in conversation with those who have gone before us. Both playful and profound at the same time
Joeann’s work teaches and stretches us,” said Lucianne Siers in presenting the award.

Lucianne added that “ In both her person and her work, Joann Daley is teaching us, living and praying with us and playfully invites us to look deeper into our reality. She is much like Fra Angelico in that she instructs and calls us to be more deeply aware of the transcendent reality within our own everyday experience.  Much like what Fra Angelico did with Dominic appearing in the Christian Story, Joeann does with our own lives, placing ourselves within the context of a holy space.”
