Soul Works

December 7, 2017 – January 21, 2018

Reception: January 4, 5:30-7:30 pm


“I believe that the dark night of the soul is a common spiritual experience. I believe, too, that the answer is continued seeking and perseverance. It helps to know that others have endured a loss of faith.” -Julie Cameron

This exhibit asks artists: How has your art helped you persevere through the dark night of the soul? We are looking for artwork that makes apparent your process for persevering. It might be a repetitive process or a process that requires great patience, or a practice that is difficult but satisfying and successful in its result.

Featured artists: 

Biagio Civale
Philip Feller
Enrico Giordano
Sania Samad
Rosanne Walsh
Jeanne Wilkinson
Ismat Zahra
Jane Breskin Zalben
