In April, Associate Professor Sarah Marshall presents a solo exhibition of hand-dyed fabric works and quilts at the Wiregrass Museum of Art in Dothan, Alabama. The work in Exquisite Disorientation incorporates printmaking techniques such as screenprinting, cyanotype and relief printing on fabric. Like much of Marshall’s complex and recurring iconography, the images are influenced by the artist’s interests in language, reading and book objects, architecture, and biological science.
Exquisite Disorientation: Sarah Marshall at the Wiregrass Museum of Art in Dothan, Alabama, runs from April 22 through June 25, 2022.
Marshall’s art focuses on the processes of printmaking and drawing. Her works on paper and fabric show organic forms that become portraits and characters; repeated in various environments, these characters examine our ideas about decision-making and the ways we treat each other.
Her work has been included in numerous national and international juried exhibitions and has been the subject of solo exhibitions in Alabama, Iowa, Pennsylvania and Maryland. She has curated exhibitions and presented lectures and demonstrations at the College Art Association, the State University of West Georgia, West Virginia University and the University of North Alabama, among others.
