San Francisco, CA 94103

EXHIBITION DATES: May 18, 2019 – June 22, 2019
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, May 18th 7-9PM
The word “Sanctuary” has recently been associated with individual and municipality resistance to the Federal enforcement of immigration laws. “Sanctuary” itself has a wide range of definitions: a place offering shelter, a sacred or consecrated place, a container of holy things, a refuge for humans or wildlife, and a place offering immunity from law. We are seeking works that broadly define “Sanctuary.” Works that convey political activism, faith and religion, wildlife protections, and a place of refuge, peace and safety are welcome, as well as abstract works that express the meaning of “Sanctuary.”
GUIDELINES: Sculpture, painting, drawing, photo, printmaking, ceramics, assemblage, collage, mixed media, fiber art, glass art, and artist books are all accepted. Artists must reside in the United States in order to be eligible to apply.
