EXHIBITION: The McClure Presents Fragile
Mar 3 @ 12:00 – Mar 25 @ 17:00

fragile sarah stevensonThe McClure Gallery of the Visual Arts Centre, 350 Victoria, presents Fragile, featuring the works of Sarah Stevenson.

Several light, insubstantial sculptures will be suspended from the ceiling and will appear to float within the space of the gallery, pivoting in reaction to the movements of the visitors. The surface of each shape will be covered by a network of fine lines made up of threads which form a fragile cage, suggesting transitory or imaginary dwellings and oneiric spaces. The sculptures will be accompanied by drawings of the same forms.

Exhibition: Friday, March 3 to Saturday, March 25
Vernissage: Thursday, March 2 at 6 pm
Artist’s Talk: Thursday, March 9 at 7 pm
Gallery Hours: Tuesday to Friday, noon to 6 pm; Saturday, noon to 5 pm
