“Beauty is Truth, Truth Beauty” wrote British Romantic poet John Keats.

Painter Rosemarie Evans cites the poet’s words as the philosophy that explains much of her work. Perhaps the close observation and expression of beauty makes us think beyond our finite selves. We can explore these ideas in St. Anthony on the Desert’s October online exhibit “Chasing Beauty, Finding Truth: Paintings by Rosemarie Evans.” (st-anthony.net/the-arts-council.)
