This Month’s Artist is still creating!  Check back later for details about the artist and art being installed for this month’s ARTChurch!

About ARTChurch: Inspired by the rich spirituality and deep themes inherent in art, ARTChurch looks at scripture and liturgy through the lens of the art installed in the Gallery at Sanctuary UCC. On the second Sunday of each month, we experience the Holy—and the holy in each other—through the images, colors, themes and creative energies of the installation, the artist’s perspective and that which is seen by the observer.

March Gallery Installation: Eric Smith, Nature Photographer (extended)
Mar 1 – Mar 30 all-day

In the ‘dead of winter’ Eric Smith, photographer – will be with us to share the breathtaking ‘personality’ of some of God’s most amazing creatures.  esmithphoto.zenfolio.com/

From the Artist: “The photos in this collection are meant to draw you into the natural world of New England, give you a glimpse into the lives of the wild animals that live there.  An amazing variety of animals surround us; these photos will introduce you to many of them.

One of my passions is telling stories through my pictures.  I love capturing that magic moment that expresses the animals’ character and transports you into their world. When I’m out in nature and I see these creatures, it revitalizes me; when I share my pictures I invite others into my experience.

I hope my photos bring the viewer into the scene and closer to these animals, to share in my joy of discovery. May you be as inspired as I am by these creatures – and may they appreciate them and love them as much as I do.”

April Gallery Installation | “Reflection” School of the Museum of Fine Arts @ Tufts – First Year Students
Apr 3 – Apr 26 all-day

“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.
