By a Staff Reporter Over 300 persons -were present at the opening, on Thursday last, of the Exhibition of Catholic Art. The exhibition, the first since the war, was arranged by the Guild of Catholic Artists and Craftsmen. It is being held in the Royal Institute of British Architects, Portland Place, and remains open until October 11. Surrounded by carvings of wood and stone, painttngs and examples of Christian architecture, Fr. Martin D'Arey, S.J., distinguished philosopher and Provincial of the Jesuits, officially opened the Exhibition.
" The carved screens of the past record the habit of good work and when that habit becomes a part of life itself it follows that you cannot do bad work and when, to-day, a group forms such as this, to present good work and other people begin to take an interest . . . it is then that the possibility exists of acquiring such a habit." In concluding his remarks, Fr. D'Arcy reminded those present that they had inherited the richest art from the past. " We can hope by our efforts that we shall add to this inheritance."
