Three-phase exhibition “Shifting Sanctuaries: Inter-religious Dialogue Through Artistic Expression,” Nov-2011 through May 2012

Invited artist and speaker for the three-phase exhibition “Shifting Sanctuaries: Interreligious Dialogue Through Artistic Expression,” Indianapolis, March 2012.

CTS alumni Amy Kindred, Masters of Theological Studies students Alfred Eaker and Yohana Junker are collaborating on a theological dialogue through artistic expression. This three-phase exhibition will journey through three distinct venues--the Earth House Collective (Lockerby United Methodist Church), T.K. Nelson Gallery, and CTS, in Indianapolis, IN throughout the fall of 2012.

These three shows represent their spiritual journeys at different stages. In each phase, they communicate with and challenge each other, the viewers, and the spaces to encounter Shifting Sanctuaries as a spiritual process and pilgrimage.

The first showing, Room for a View (Nov. 4th), suggests a dialogue for theological and artistic diversity: Amy Kindred (Unitarian Universalist), Alfred Eaker (Catholic), and Yohana Junker (Methodist) speak a shared artistic-spiritual-embodied language which is unrestricted, unfinished, and all-inclusive.

In the second showing, Seeking and Hiding (Dec. 2nd ) the three artists seek to discover meaning in a different sanctuary with the child-like joy of repetition gleamed from the experience of the first collaboration. 

In the third and final showing, A Boundlessly Expansive Road, the artists make their way back to CTS, the home that cultivated their ultimate spiritual yearning.
