Sanctuaries in Time

The idea of creating personal sanctuaries in time is based on noted philosopher Abraham Joshua Heschel's concept that "Judaism is a religion of time" and that we must move "beyond the confines of measured time" to set aside time and space for creating and building a life of values and spirituality in our lives.
The challenge to the artist to consider the balance of the mystery and continuum of time and her place in the present brought over 100 artists with near 300 images for consideration. 40 artists and 54 works were selected for the exhibition.

Congratulations to the following artists who were juried into the exhibition: Cheselyn Amato, Marilyn Banner, Binnie Birstein, Andrea Borsuk, Barbara Melnick Carson, Vanessa Chappelear, Nancy Coleman, Emily Corbato, Sherri Cornett, Anne Doris-Eisner, Harriet Finck, Michele Gage, Nina Goebel, Fay Grajower, Caryl Herzfeld, Rachel Kanter, Rosa Katzenelson, Julie Klaper, Ronni Komarow, Elaine Langerman, Alice Engel Levinson, Judith Morton, Carol Philips, Roxanne Phillips, Laurel Robinson, Flora Rosefsky, Sherry Zvares Sanabria, Ruth Segaloff, Susan Shender, Debbie Schore, Marlene Siff, Barbara Simcoe, Simone Soltan, Iris Sonnenschein, Heather Stoltz, Tamara Wasserman, Jennifer Weigel, Lisa DeLoria Weinblatt, Corinne Whitaker and Laurie Wohl
