Sanctuary Art Center: Art as an agent for healing…

through Monday, August 18, 2014 Cathedral Nave Coffee Corner

The Sanctuary Art Center is a multi-faceted art studio for homeless and street involved youth with a mission to create a safe, warm, calm environment for these youth to experience creativity and success through the use of various artistic media. The pieces selected for the show here at Saint Mark's Cathedral provide a variety of expressions of this mission. These youth are survivors of social injustice. Their artwork is sometimes a reflection of the past, sometimes a portrait of the present and sometimes a plan for the future. In all cases it is their truth. The creative process allows the artists to define themselves on their own terms without judgment. It is a key ingredient in their journey towards healing and life off the street.

This will be a wonderful celebration of the success of the Sanctuary Art Center begun many years ago by the Rev. Mary Shehane who served as Deacon at Saint Mark’s Cathedral. Volunteers share their art skills at the Center - this is a wonderful opportunity. Please enjoy the exhibit and share this opportunity with your friends. If you are interested in purchasing art in the exhibit and/or volunteering at the Center, please contact Nan Nalder at or 206.281.7079.
