"Sanctuary" has a wide range of definitions: a place offering shelter, a sacred or consecrated place, a container of holy things, a refuge for humans or wildlife, and a place offering immunity from law. Included in this exhibition are works that convey political activism, faith and religion, wildlife protections, and a place of refuge, peace and safety.
Juror Bryan Yedinak of Themes + Projects Gallery, San Francisco states, "...I feel the theme of, 'Sanctuary,' is a place to reflect and contemplate quietness and beauty. To me, this temporal escape was an enjoyable journey and exploration into so many wonderful works of art that were not limited to one artistic medium. My hope is that 'Sanctuary' will bring the viewer a sense of calm reflection and possible escape, from our fast paced Silicon Valley world, and maybe bring a smile to your face."
