The Chalice Project: Celebration & Auction
To some a chalice is a sacred cup used in religious ceremonies, while to botanists it's the name of one part of a flower. To some, Chalice is a fitting metaphor for femininity, generosity, and gratitude. Like most ancient ideas, a chalice can take many forms. Six months ago, artists from across Sonoma County were asked to meditate on the word "chalice," and to create a piece of art that reflected their vision of what a chalice is, or stands for.
Beginning on January 15th, fifty-two of these pieces, created by a number of acclaimed local professional artists, and others, will be displayed at the Glaser Center in Santa Rosa, beginning with a spirited reception on opening day. The six-week exhibition will culminate on February 26 with a grand celebration and art auction, with proceeds benefiting C.O.T.S (The Committee on the Shelterless), the Unitarian Universalist Congregation (which also serves the homeless community through its weekly Breakfast With Our Neighbors Program), and the artists themselves.
The exhibition is to the public Monday-Friday, 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m., and during all public Glaser Center events.
The Chalice Celebration & Auction will feature live music by Roger Corman, the French trio Une Deuz Trois, plus food and drink, and plenty of surprises.
