An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until September 25, 2020
The University of Alabama Department of Art and Art History proudly presents Sara Garden Armstrong: Threads and Layers, August 7 – September 25, 2020, in The University of Alabama Gallery and The Arts Council Gallery of the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center in Tuscaloosa. While Tuscaloosa and The University of Alabama practice safe distancing, the gallery’s exhibition will be open by appointment only. Armstrong’s work is also presented in an online exhibition on Flickr.com and on Facebook.com and on this page below.
Sara Garden Armstrong: Threads and Layers surveys works by Alabama native and UA alumna, Sara Garden Armstrong, representing an artistic practice in Alabama and New York spanning six decades. The exhibition displays works varying in media from handmade artist books to painting to sculpture and installation, which interpret life cycles and metamorphosis using movement, color, sound, texture and light.
The artist said about this exhibition: “Chance and change drive my artwork as I explore and push the possibilities of materials. In the finished work you see movement, repetition, transparency, layering, and mapping with organic shapes and forms, often with a focus on flow and transformation.”
