All-Congregation Summer Art Show
July - August, 2017
Meet the Artists: July 16 12:00-2:00 pm
What happens when artist-members and friends of UU Santa Fe of all ages are invited to exhibit their work during July-August? Art on Barcelona is able to present a great All-Congregation Summer Art Show!!!
Trip memories are featured in Esther Jones’ fabric art in which she has created the essence of Flat Irons in Boulder, salt marshes in Kansas, mountains in Colorado. A fourth piece depicts an ocean floor full of engaging sea creatures.
Sculptor Robert Francis describes his work in alabaster as a dialog with the stone. His ceramic work reflects the forgotten soul of the earth; his adobe creations, the living earth. Nature is foremost in his photographs for which he uses his “artist eye” to capture the moment. Look for a heart framed by aspen trees and a mysterious spirit light shining down on St. Francis.
The dramatic flowers photographed by Jan Miller, another nature photographer, add dramatic color to the show.
Danielle Jimenez’s colorful acrylic paintings were inspired by her field work in Guatemala.
Iguanas and tortoises from the Galalapagos Islands, as well as an Australian koala bear, are fancifully depicted by Virginia Asman who met these creatures on a trip to the Southern Hemisphere.
Rounding out the exhibit is the art of our youngest artists—from nursery through youth. Their artwork was an outgrowth of the Children and Youth Culture and Diversity curriculum. Several of the pieces illustrate how our differences can come together to make a flaming chalice!
You will have an opportunity to speak to the artists about their work on Sunday, July 16 after the second service.
