Talk: Saturday, July 18 at 3:30pm

Join the Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery for a rare opportunity to meet the curator and artists of Sanctuary. A casual reception will follow the artists’ talk where you can meet and mingle with the artists.

A place of refuge or safety; an oasis, retreat, and safe haven; a consecrated place – a sanctuary can serve all of these functions. Seen as a place of safekeeping and as a space where transformation can take place, the idea of “sanctuary” has long provided artists with the inspiration to create. Curated by Shanti Norris and in collaboration with the Washington Sculptor’s Group comes Sanctuary, exploring the concept of how space can create refuge.

Sanctuary features the work of Salamah Arden, Alan Binstock, Gloria Chapa, Jeff Chyatte, Joel D’Orazio, Alonzo Davis, Annie Farrar, Pattie Porter Firestone, Tom Greaves, Artemis Herber, Liz Lescault, Ruth Lozner, Claire McArdle, Rima Schulkind, Mike Shaffer, Lynda Smith-Bugge, Marcos Smyth, Paul Steinkoenig, Garrett Strang, Isabelle Truchon, Pat Wasserboehr, Janet Wheeler, and Millicent Young.

The Joan Hisaoka Gallery is located at 1632 U Street NW. For more information call 202.483.8600 or visit www.smithcenter.org.
