About the artist:

Sally Chapman

Sally Chapman is a photographer living in the Boston area. She earned a BFA in ceramics and photography from Michigan State University. For over twenty years she worked as a ceramic artist in Colorado showing extensively in New Mexico, Colorado, and Wyoming. Moving to California and Massachusetts her attention went to spiritual pursuits seeing that the desire to create art is the same as the desire for spirit.

The magic of capturing images at night inspired her to begin creating artwork again with the camera. Her photographic subjects are often of the urban landscape and neighborhoods. Recently she has been shown in exhibits at the Cambridge Art Association, Plymouth Center for the Arts, Springfield Art Association in Springfield, IL, Griffin Museum, Barrett Art Center, Fort Collins Lincoln Center, and Photographic Resource Center. She is a member of the Boston Camera Club, and Greater Boston Night Photographers.

Shrines and Altars w/Sally Chapman | ARTChurch | Sunday Circle
Jan 27 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

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.

About the artist:

Haleh FotowatI was born in Tehran, Iran. I obtained my bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering in Tehran before moving to the United States to pursue my master’s and then PhD in Neuroscience. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in neuroscience at Harvard University.Art has always been an integral part of my life. I have been playing a musical instrument called the Kanun for the past 29 years. My training in art started also many years ago in Tehran where I took courses in drawing and acrylic painting. More recently, I have studied creative painting at the Ottawa School of Art. I am passionate about observing life from scientific and artistic points of view. There is always a big element of spontaneity and music in my paintings. My paintings start with drawing patterns that I draw on the spot while listening to music: jagged lines, curved lines, maybe words, whatever my hand feels like doing at that point till I decide to stop, and then I add paint. I love painting like this since I never know what I will get in the end. I feel like by doing this I can bring out a part of me on that day that I would have never known existed had I not painted.

About the Artist:

Youveline Joseph is a visual artist, born in Haiti but raised in Brockton, Massachusetts. Her passion for art began at a young age. Around the age of five she began to showcase her natural ability to draw and create. In high school she took an International Baccalaureate art class, an advance art class, designed to allow creative students to excel in their art. Later on, Youveline minored in Fine Arts in college while majoring in Sociology with a concentration in Health Medicine.

After graduating in 2017, Youveline decided to pursue her art on a more professional level. She mainly paints with acrylic paint on canvas. While on her journey to understand and grow as an individual she began to develop her Afrocentric painting style. She uses a combination of cowrie shells, crystals, and glitter to personalize her artworks. She also incorporates bright, vibrant colors, patterns, and textures into her pieces.

Moreover, her inspiration comes from beauty, culture, social media, fashion, adversity, and societal issues. Her body of work focuses on representation and her goal is to showcase and praise the beauty of her people (i.e. the diversity in the African diaspora).
