St. Angela Merici, Foundress of the Ursuline Sisters, once said, “Do something, get moving, be con- fident, risk new things, stick with it, then be ready for big surprises.” St. Angela Merici was a woman ahead of her time and her progressive vision is exemplified every day on Ursuline College’s campus. One woman who embodies this boldness is Anna Arnold, Director of Florence O’Donnell Wasmer Gallery.
Since the age of five, Arnold has considered herself an artist. “There was never an issue with identity. I knew I wanted to be an artist,” says Anna. Encouraged all through her life to be an artist by family and teachers, coupled with her own talent, persistence and stubbornness, Anna found her way from artist to teacher to gallery director.
