DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The Wiregrass Museum of Art is opening an exhibition by Alabama native, Sara Garden Armstrong, called “Sara Garden Armstrong: Threads and Layers”.
The exhibition will be a representation of her legacy spanning the past six decades. It will bring together her works in a different medium, including handmade artist books, paintings, sculpture, and mechanical, light, and sound-based installations.
“A native Alabamian, Sara spent much of her career in New York City, but this exhibition, and her accompanying monograph, is a homecoming of sorts. WMA’s galleries provide unique opportunities to create new conversations between works of art across Sara’s decades-long career. I’m looking forward to presenting this body of work in a way that hasn’t been seen before,” said Dana-Marie Lemmer, WMA’s executive director and curator.
The general public is invited to a sneak peek during WMA’s extended evening gallery hours on Thursday, October 15 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The exhibit will officially open Friday, Oct. 16, and run until December 31.
All museum guests are required to wear a mask and to observe posted physical distancing rules while in the galleries.
