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