George Fry Gallery (NBCCD) – Explore current exhibition: The Waves by Sarah Cale The Waves is named after the novel by Virginia Woolf of the same title. The work in this exhibition, although varied, is brought together by a single repeating handwoven woven pattern with an undulating character: a โ€œwaveโ€ of threads rising and falling in a repeated motion. In between this wave-like image where the rise and fall meet, forms of eyes are depicted: eyes from which the characters found in this exhibition emerge. Faces constructed in ceramics, as woven tapestry and as paintings arise from a tide of this single patterning.

Gallery admissions are free of charge during the gallery hop.
