Gallery Exhibit: The Sleep Series

George Mason University - Tue, 05/12/2015 - 14:52

Visit Fenwick Gallery between now and the end of June, and you will encounter a long series of methodical watercolors spanning the entire length of Fenwick Gallery.

The exhibit is called The Sleep Series and it is one series in a larger project by Mason MFA candidate Sarah Irvin. The watercolors are composed of a series of blue lines like tick marks, marking the the time Irvin’s infant daughter spent napping on various occasions. Installed in a row approximately 50 feet long, the work is a powerful meditation on the time, waiting and work involved in caring for a child.

The show is up through June 26th, 2015. For more information about Fenwick Gallery, please contact Jenna Rinalducci, Art + Art History Librarian, jrinaldu @ gmu.edu
