Professor Sarah Hardesty’s Work on Exhibition

Assistant Professor of Fine Arts and Barry Gallery Director Sarah Hardesty is being featured in a gallery exhibition entitled Convergence: Works by AAC’s Resident Artists, put on by the Arlington Arts Center. The exhibition is on view January 12 through March 30, 2019.

Hardesty’s participation in this exhibition is being supported by an Marymount University faculty development ‘START’ grant (focused on helping faculty position themselves better to seek external awards) and a Mednick grant from the Virginia Foundation for Independent Colleges (VFIC).

Featuring a diverse selection of works by AAC’s twelve resident artists, this exhibition examines the current trajectories of individual artists, while embodying the creative dialogue that characterizes AAC’s residency program. Resident artists are chosen through a highly competitive process, and long-term residents can remain up to six years in private, subsidized studios. The program promotes individual development within a communal culture of creative exchange. Artists featured include AAC’s ten long-term and two short-term resident artists: Negar Ahkami, Michèle Colburn, Roxana Alger Geffen, Sarah Hardesty, Stephanie Lane, Marissa Long, Ryan McCoy, Olivia Tripp Morrow, Jen Noone, Jung Min Park, Austin Shull, and Dawn Whitmore.

The gallery is located at 3550 Wilson Blvd, Arlington, VA 22201 and is open Wednesday – Sunday, 12-5 pm, or by appointment.
