The new exhibit called “Designing Line and Space: The Art of Sara Wallach” opens at the University of Arizona Museum of Art on Friday, July 18, 2014. The exhibit features her etchings that are mostly part of the Sara Wallach Archive donated to the Museum’s Archive of Visual Arts in 2012. This archive includes things she used in her printmaking process as well as sketches, photographs, and her own writings.
Sara Wallah created “Saragraphs,” which are sculptural etchings. In creating her art, Sara Wallach put equal emphasis on the space around the line as well as the line. Wallah’s art not only provides an interpretation of how she saw the world, but also encourages viewers to consider the world and their position in it.
The “Designing Line and Space: The Art of Sara Wallach” exhibit is expected to remain on display through September 21, 2014.
Other temporary exhibits currently on display at the U of A Museum of Art include “Master Works on Paper,” “Fate and Fulfillment: Selections from the William Small Collection,” “Cultivating Treasures,” “A Continuing Legacy: Gallagher Purchases Part I,” and “A Continuing Legacy: Gallagher Purchases Part I.”
