An exhibit themed "Sacred Spaces" brings together Jewish artists in the Twin Cities Area to create pieces of artwork which will be featured at the Sabes Jewish Community Center this December.
According to The Star Tribune Rachel Breen, an art professor at Anoka Ramsey Community College, as well as nine other artists will each work in a temporary art gallery at the community center two days during mid-November preparing pieces for the an exhibit to be held later this year.
The artists who are participating in the center's "10 artists in 30 days" exhibit work with the door open, amid the clamor of young children and elderly guests and encourage the visitors to watch and ask questions. Their work, which they will later finish in their own studios, will be featured in December's exhibit, "Sacred Spaces."
Breen tells The Star Tribune that she hopes her work will prompt critical thinking. The theme of her piece addresses the ability to find the sacred in the mundane. She creates holes with a machine typically meant to bring fabric together and asks the question, "How far can things go before they fall apart?"
