About the exhibition

Dale Williams
SANCTUARY 2000
Drawings and Books, solo exhibition 

June 1 - 28, 1996


Sanctuary 2000 is a prescription for the future—to look deeply and honestly at our confusion, pain and ugliness, to look at our longing for fulfillment and joy, and there to find the mirror of life and to live by that light. No turning away from feeling, no self-alienating irony. Sanctuary can be wherever we look with compassion. Sanctuary is a street that covers the earth in a complex and circuitous path that passes through our very doors.

"Everything that lives is Holy," wrote William Blake, and "...we are put on earth a little spacethat we may learn to bear the beams of love"—shine even through our sorrowful or numb faces: the potential ecstasy.
