Becoming Animal
Standing Witness for the Sentient Wild
Solo Exhibition by Sharon K. Schafer
June 16 - September 2, 2018

Opening Reception with the artist!
2:00 - 4:00 p.m., Saturday, June 16.

(The artist will give a gallery talk during the opening at 3:00 p.m.)

“Becoming Animal” explores the artificial breach between humans and the natural world. Through the use of black and white photography, Schafer reminds viewers that humanity’s deepest fear is not that we are separate from nature, but rather that we are a part of it. This exhibit will provide a space for reflection and will allow guests an engagement opportunity to form deeper relationships with the non-human animals of the planet.

Juried Exhibition from the Studio Art Quilt Association
December 1, 2018 - February 10, 2019

H2Oh! highlights work from selected Studio Quilt Association (SAQA) artists all about water. Artists were encouraged to interpret one of the most vital, desired, powerful, sacred, and enjoyed resources on earth in their own unique, individual style, whether abstract, graphic, or representational. The majority of the earth’s surface is covered by water, and more than half of the human body consists of water. Water also plays an essential role in our survival. Cultures have thrived based on their proximity to water, and crops survive or fail, based on rain or the lack thereof. Every living thing depends on water to survive, and life hangs in the balance when shortages persist. Immerse yourself in this unique exhibit!

Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) is dedicated to bringing beautiful, thought-provoking, cutting-edge artwork to venues across the United States and around the world. For more information visit:
