“Reflection” at Gallery at the Sanctuary

SpecialDates:

ARTChurch with the Artists – April 8th, 2018, 10:00am – 11:00 am

Reception and Reflections with the Artists – April 20th, 2018, 7:00 pm

The “Reflection” show at Gallery  at the Sanctuarybrings together different works of six students from the graduate class of 2019of the Smfa at Tufts. The show is intended to be the first, and will befollowed by a second one in the following months by another group of studentsof the same class.

Students’ artworks reflect their individual conceptsderived from their focus and thus, the themes of the works display asubstantial variety. A range of medium takes place in the show including video,printmaking  – specifically handmadepaper, textile work, and painting which consists of techniques such as oil,acrylic paints, gouache, and ink.

Within this context, Paulina MacNeil, as a consumer, respondsto the demanding production of capitalism in the fashion industry with her sewnpatchwork textile pieces of tags. Willoughby Hastings works with conflictingvisual symbols to explain personalexperiences related to complicated social matters such as hierarchy or thememory of hierarchy within the society in terms of class and race. 

Gisele Gardner’spainting, Rapturous, challenges thegray area between contrasting ideas and draws the audience into the field ofuncertainty of what they see. Constructed through the material that created hismemories of his grandfather and his grandfather’s space, Louis Meola’s handmadepaper is an extension of his work which deals with memory and loss.

Lei Zong and GulumhanHuma Yildirim’s works re-contextual or re-interpret the “classical” or the“traditional”. In this sense, Lei focuses on Flemish paintings and carries themto the present time by adding or subtracting from the setting and relocatingthe characteristics of the original work into new social settings. While Humacontinues making traditional Turkish illumination artwork, she also seeks to re-interpretit by borrowing elements of contemporary art and merging them into herbackground.

Rita Ortolino-Dioguardi, a talented collage and quilt artist, has been creating collage art since a young girl. What started as childhood art projects has bloomed into unique and colorful pieces of art. These stunning images are spontaneous creations. Her paper collages are created by ripping, not cutting, simple splashes of color from magazines and glossy advertisements and her quilts are born from simple scraps of material. Each piece of art is given a witty name that helps bring the creation to life.

Prints and cards of Rita’s work will be available for purchase during the installation.

This award wining, “gut-twisting, cinder-black comedy” was nominated for the Academy’s Best Picture and deftly balances black comedy against searing drama — and draws unforgettable performances from its veteran cast along the way.

“it’s a Cirque du Soleil-like tightrope walk, gracefully balancing the harrowing with the humorous.”

is an uncomfortable meditation on the chaos – social, intimate, moral – that causes impunity.”

“… one of the angriest films in recent memory. Yet it has moments of unlikely (yet hilarious) comedy and sincere tenderness, along with acts of nearly unwatchable violence.”
