Sustenance of Life

2012 ArtPrize Entry

This year's W.H.A.T. ( women heartfully art together), Artists explores the idea of what sustains our lives, including what supports, encourages, gives vitality to, and nourishes our spirits. Each of the thirteen artists in this collaboration created an art piece that is 14" square, of their interpretation of "Sustenance of Life" that relates to their own life and experiences. The pieces are individually framed, then joining as one. Each artist with their own uniqueness, supporting the greater community. The "One" of the individual uniting together supporting the "One" of the whole. Materials are varied, including fabric, glass, clay, wood, paint and more. Also included is the reuse of objects, fabric, and other materials that symbolically represent sustaining our earth. As you view this year's W.H.A.T. Artists' artprize entry, "Sustenance of Life," ask yourself what sustains you in your life? Also what are you doing to help sustain our earth? Thank you for supporting the Arts!
