Before you take pencil to paper, paint brush to canvas or click the switch of the camera lens, you are required to look and look some more. Art instructors everywhere will encourage their students to open their eyes to look and – eventually, but not always – to see the world around them. The photographs of Neda Miranda Blažević–Kreitzman, Dubrovnik, Sedona and the Grand Canyon: Aesthetic Mirroring of Nature and Architecture, are about looking and seeing. Through her photographic journey, Blazevic–Krietzman has seen and recorded profound comparisons and similarities between the breathtakingly beautiful Arizona landscape and the magnificent Medieval architecture of Dubrovnik, Croatia.

This exhibition opened a little over a year ago in Blažević–Kreitzman’s hometown of Zagreb, Croatia and moved on to Vienna, Austria. The Catherine G. Murphy Gallery at the College of St. Catherine is proud to be the first U.S. venue for this exquisite show. We welcome our visitors to take time to look and – eventually – to see the beauty of both the subjects of the photographs as well as the photographs themselves. Ultimately, we hope visitors take away a greater sense of the world around them.
