U.Va.’S Fayerweather Gallery To Exhibit The Paintings Of California Artist Squeak Carnwath

January 8, 2001 -- Fayerweather Gallery at the University of Virginia will exhibit paintings by award-winning California artist Squeak Carnwath from Jan. 22 through Feb. 24. An opening reception will be held 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 2. The artist will give a slide lecture on her work Thursday, Feb. 1, at 7 p.m. in Campbell Hall, Room 160.

Carnwath’s paintings are large and colorful, often including numbers, text, lists and symbols. Ordinary images, a swatch of color, a glass of water, a sock are examined and studied, and organized into categories and grids. These images are like specimen samples that are examined as part of something larger and more abstract.

Carnwath is currently a professor in residence at the University of California, Berkeley. She received her M.F.A. from the California College of Arts and Crafts in 1977. She has received numerous awards and grants, including a 1994 Guggenheim Fellowship and two National Endowment for the Arts Individual Artist Fellowships. Her work also is part of many private and museum collections, including the San Francisco Fine Arts Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Brooklyn Museum in New York City.

Fayerweather Gallery is located on the lower level of Fayerweather Hall, on Rugby Road next to the Bayly Art Museum. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
