Art and Inspiration: Unearthing Traces
Friday, November 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Sanctuary United Church of Christ presents a reception and reflection with first-year graduate students from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University whose group exhibition, “Unearthing Traces,” is on display at the Sanctuary Gallery through December 5. Approaching with diverse practices, participating artists came together in an intimate space of Sanctuary UCC, creating an environment for converging ideas and relations. “Unearthing Traces” is a site of connecting explorations that fuel individual artists’ research. From works that explore experiences of absence and displacement to pieces literally composed of traces and marks of drawing, this exhibition invites the community of Sanctuary UCC and Boston to ponder what it means to discover, observe, and bring light to the things that remain.
Participating artists are Priya Dave, Flor De Maria Delgadillo, Juyon Lee, Emily McDonald, Jana Purington, Camila Alexzandra Sánchez-Longo, Nikki Silva and Zuofu Wang. Hear from the SMFA students about their inspiration and process – and join the conversation about your own experience of their creativity.
BYOB: Bring your own beer, wine or soda.
The Sanctuary Gallery is open Tuesday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to noon, and by appointment (781-395-3360).
