Merlin’s work selected for ‘In Place’ at Sulfur Studios in Savannah

"The last supper, feminine version" Painting by Mia Merlin
Mia Merlin, The last supper, feminine version

Mia Merlin, Senior Lecturer of Art in Life and Foundations, has a piece “The last supper, feminine version” in the current juried exhibition “In Place” at Sulfur Studios in the Starland district of Savannah.

The exhibit asked the question: What is ‘your place?’ This can mean a dwelling, a destination, a speaking platform, an emotional escape, a virtual space, or an impossible one. Artists were encouraged to submit work that transports them in a time when they are otherwise confined. Merlin’s piece is a memory from a family gathering last winter, that “seems like a distant dream in light of the current pandemic.”

“In Place,” will run from Aug. 20 to Sept. 5.

The exhibition will be both physical and virtual: stop by the gallery during regular hours (Thursday through Saturday, noon to 5 p.m.) or by appointment, or check out the exhibition online at, www.sulfurstudios.org.

Virtual Events via Instagram Live @SulfurStudios
Gallery Talk: Saturday, Aug. 22 at 2 p.m.
Virtual Closing Reception: Saturday, Sept. 5 at 2 p.m.
