THE THING THAT SAVES US
January/February 2009

STUDIO ARTISTS ASK “WHAT IS SALVATION?”

           

Over thirty artists at the Studio have created artwork that represents to them what it is
that makes life more bearable. In some cases, artists chose things that actually help
save lives, like Dawn Wentworth’s very large paper mache coast guard helicopter rescuing dolls
floating in a foam sea. Or the representation by Elizabeth Guynn of a rattlesnake, whose venom

can be used to make medicine.
 

Other artists chose to interpret this show’s themes in more personally and psychically
relevant ways. Iris Smith, for example, showed a picture of flowers, presumably because

flowers are an important part of her world.  Mark Williams quite often paints pictures with Jesus

in them and he chose one of these paintings for this show.

The show's second opening on Saturday, February 1st included a cabaret

performed by the Studio Drama class. click here for more about the cabaret
