Common Languages: January 5 – February 12, 2012

12/22/2011
The Marnie Sheridan Gallery will open “Common Languages,” an exhibition of photographs by Stacey Irvin and paintings and collages by Victoria Boone from January 5 through February 12. Irvin is a humanitarian photographer, who travels the world capturing the interconnectedness of our common humanity. She will be exhibiting her series from Guatemala, along with photographs of her experiences in China, Kenya, and Ecuador. Boone creates abstract paintings and collages filled with personal and recognizable symbols. She will be showing recent works from her “Forces of Transformation” series. Working through physical pain, Boone creates harmony on the canvas.

In Common Languages, both Boone and Irvin focus on the human spirit, and the mystical and real connection of our common humanity. Each artist has been influenced by her travels, and has expressed what she has found in her own unique art. Irvin takes portraits in a documentary-like style, and Boone finds symbols that speak to the psyche in her arrangements on canvas and paper.
Art is a common language that people all over the world can speak and understand. It is a language beyond words, and we invite you to come and partake of our shared humanity.

For further information, contact Marla Faith, Gallery Director, at faith@harpethhall.org. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The gallery is in the McMurry Center for Arts and Athletics, which is accessible from the Esteswood Drive entrance.
