Remade in Hope

If you are looking at the display right now, read on.

If you would like to know about the project, click here.


What you are looking at is the work of 34 artists who were each asked to make two canvases,

  • one one themes of dark, struggle, despair, stuck-ness,

  • the other on themes of light, joy, hope, and release.


They are mounted back to back on the structure, the dark on the outside, the light on the inside.

More about each artist on their pages--see the artist drop down menu.

There are (at least) two ways to look at this:

  • To view each artists work separately, looking outside and then inside to see how an artist made meaning out of the two themes.

  • To view all the 'dark' panels first, and notice common symbols images, or where themes diverge, and then view all the 'light' panels with the same eye to commonality and difference.

Two big questions might emerge:

  • What complexities show up as we think in terms of dark and light, despair and hope, imprisonment and liberation?  How do the  themes relate to one another and speak to one another

  • What it means to 'enter' the darkness, and discover the 'light?'  How have you experienced that in your life?

A discussion guide is available on the drop down menu.

There are also events (see the Events page in the drop down menu) that celebrate and further this project.  

Remade in Hope is art in a public space enabling reflection and contemplation on spiritual theme of transformation from death into life, struggle into victory, loss into love, and despair into hope.

Artists of all ages and experience levels have participated in this project, which is an expression of the mission of South Congregational Church, a community of Joy and Wonder, to be a spiritual resource and trusted partner in service to the Kennebunks.

The exhibit will be on view from March 1 to April 30 at 2 North Street in Kennebunkport Maine, and may be viewed during daylight hours. 

This program is made possible through a Vital Worship Grant from the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, Grand Rapids, Michigan, with funds provided by Lilly Endowment Inc.
