In addition to their own extensive holdings, the University of Saint Joseph has plenty of art-loving friends and well-wishers. So when they put together Objects of Affection II — a second helping of art borrowed from the greater community that's on display until mid-December — they had lots to choose from: ivory miniatures Elsie Dodge Pattee, a watercolor by Richard Yarde, Impressionist/Tonalist oil paintings by John Henry Twachtman and Bruce Crane, landscape etchings and lithographs by James Abbott McNeill Whistler and Louis Lozowick; contemporary work by Miriam Schapiro ("Frida and Me," an homage to Frida Kahlo, pictured); and more. The gallery is open Tues.-Sat., 11 a.m.-4 p.m.; Thurs. 11 a.m.-7 p.m.; and Sun. 1-4 p.m. (closed Mon.).
