Sacred Spaces, Resting Places

curated by Beverly McCutcheon

Work by four talented artists demonstrates that the spaces and places we deem to be restful and sacred can encompass a wide variety of meanings.  For some it is a place to reflect, to pray, to contemplate or connect with the inner self.  They can be spaces and places where we rest our bodies, minds, emotions and souls.  Places where we connect to family and our roots.

Utilizing a range of mediums and styles each artist has examined and stretched the interpretation of the theme. Their diverse works will invite you to explore all the dimensions of what we know to be sacred and restful, be it through the organic softness of Rosalind Nzinga Nichol’s mixed media, handmade paper, Marc Calello’s paintings and digital photos, or Nyrvah Richard and Silvestre Leon’s alter installations.
