Elevating Humanity: Forging Healing Through Connection

Artist Sandra Antongiorgi’s collection of work allows viewers to reckon with their shared legacy of inhumanity and invites people to connect with individuals most marginalized by systems of oppression. We are encouraged to connect with our own humanity–and with that of people who are often hidden away–to lead us to the healing that we seek. *above image created by Sandra Antongiorgi and Andy Bellomo*

About The Exhibit

This exhibition highlights and connects two of Sandra’s painted series: The Caged Rooster and Gestalt Series. The Caged Rooster series captures the humanity of people who have been incarcerated and criminalized while the Gestalt Series depicts the complexities of the human experience, alluding to our biological drive toward connection and healing. Together, this collection allows views to reflect on their own humanity and healing.

Sandra’s intention is to reveal the inherited beauty within each and every human and the miracles that make us whole. The SCA will be bringing this influential and powerful work throughout the Saugatuck/Douglas/Fennville Community. Sandra will be on-site, meeting, greeting, and getting inspired with the community at our annual Jump Into Summer event on June 4th – debuting the exhibition live at the SCA. Sandra is also the featured artist at Growing Young Artists

On Resiliency

A veil of fog is beginning to lift after over a year of enforced separation. As we emerge we survey the damage of over 3 million deaths worldwide, over 500,000 in the United States alone. We must reckon with the ravages of disease, racism, isolation, and polarization. Our collective spirit resembles a body emerging from icy cold waters, blue from a lack of all that nurtures it – warmth, and air.
I can’t breathe…”


Sandra Antongiorgi
