In these tumultuous times, the artwork in Sentinels & Saviors encourages us to focus inward and find symbols that guide and uplift us amid feelings of powerlessness.

The exhibition features the work of Joell Jones and Kim Thoman, who create space for introspection. Jones’ pictorial work explores her journey into the unconscious, portraying a woman’s quest for self-discovery. Thoman’s abstract steel figures, inspired by Chinese Terracotta Warriors, represent protective guardians and emerged from her desire for protection during recovery from a serious illness. Together, these bodies of work serve as iconic avatars, encouraging viewers to pay closer attention to themselves, their thoughts, and their feelings.
