Acrylic and watercolor paintings by Sari Luna.
From the artist's website:
“I don’t remember a time in which I wasn’t drawing, painting or making forts by stapling blankets to the couch. My first 11 years were spent living in a Washington forest at the top of Tiger Mountain. I climbed trees, ran around barefoot catching snakes and frogs to admire, and most of my friends lived in the books I constantly devoured. To this day, I feel most at home and at peace with myself in the heart of a Pacific Northwest Forest.
Nature, literature and the acts of kindness delivered from strangers all feed the magic of my art. I have an insatiable lust for painting, a curiosity for the unknown and, of course, what would an artist be without their own unique way of seeing the world?
I have live painted and taught at over 100 events since 2016, I run my own arts business that focuses on unlocking people's creativity, creating commissions and vending art-centric products."

Is the commonly understood separation between the sacred and the ordinary a helpful distinction? Or do the boundaries between sacred and ordinary become blurry depending on perspective? This installation examines the connections between sacred and ordinary by looking at the every day spaces that we live. By this close reflection on the places where we live our lives, we'll look together at how the sacred and the ordinary intersect, overlap, and become one and the same.
