About the Exhibit: What does sanctuary mean to you? Sanctuary can be a place, a person, or perhaps even an activity that takes us out of our everyday lives and transports us to a sacred place. Many of us find sanctuary in the very act of creating art. For our upcoming online exhibit, we are looking for work that explores the notion of sanctuary, and perhaps even challenges the concept of what sanctuary can mean.

✨ About our Guest Curator: Ekaterina Popova is an artist who believes that our entire life is a canvas and we have the power to create anything we desire. Her mission is to empower artists and give them the tools to take responsibility for their own career and find validation and success from within. 

Ekaterina spent the past decade growing her painting practice and focusing on depicting the interior in a series of lush and colorful paintings. These works helped her explore and heal her relationship with the idea of “home,” which carries a wide array of emotions for humans, especially immigrants. The works have been recognized, exhibited, and published internationally. Additionally, Ekaterina is the founder of Create! Magazine, a publication for artists, makers, and artpreneurs.

Originally, sanctuaries were natural locations, such as groves or hills where the divine or sacred was believed to be especially present By the use of such places as a haven, the term has come to be used as a place where someone or something is protected or given shelter, as refuge or safety from pursuit, persecution, or other danger, typically used by displaced persons, refugees, and homeless people. This theme extends to what it means to have a home or a place of safety and what it means to not have one, issues we are currently facing globally, nationally, and in Oakland and the Bay Area. Juror rené de Guzman is the Director of Exhibition Strategy and Senior Curator of Art at the Oakland Museum of California (OMCA).
