Exhibition Theme: Sanctuaries in Time
As each person is unique, so too is each hour and each moment unique. How do we resolve the tension of the inevitable passage of time and the desire to cherish special moments? Time envelops holiness; time interacts with space and nature; time is a constant in the world around us; time is attached to sacred events. The Book of Exodus, chapters 25-40, offers detailed instructions for constructing a sanctuary, illustrating the timeless struggle to set aside time and space for creating and building a life of values and spirituality. How do we move "beyond the confines of measured time"(Abraham Joshua Heschel) to build our own sanctuaries in time? The challenge to the artist is to consider the balance of the mystery and continuum of time and her place in the present.
