LOCALE: Fenwick Gallery Exhibit

George Mason University - Fri, 04/01/2016 - 15:02
The current Fenwick Gallery exhibit, LOCALE, is curated by Gallery Assistant and MFA student Sarah Irvin, and features artists’ books, sculptural books and repurposed books that respond directly to the Washington DC area through concept of specific materials. The show features Washington DC area artists, as well as George Mason University students and alumni. The work in the exhibit explores topics including local folklore, bird migration, public housing, HIV prevention resources and political structures. Mason MFA student Mark Kelner recreated F. Scott Fitzgerald’s grave ledger using 50 copies of The Great Gatsby. Fitzgerald is buried in Rockville, Maryland, Kelner’s hometown, and the ledger is inscribed with the final line of the well known classic. The piece brings this local landmark into the library using books as the medium as well as the subject matter of the work. Kelner’s work and Fenwick Gallery were featured in both the Washington Post and The Examiner.
