An exhibition of recent works by Visiting Assistant Professor Stephanie Booth
To kick off the Spring 2015 exhibition season, the Sleeth Gallery is excited to host Provided, an exhibition of recent works by WVWC Visiting Assistant Professor Stephanie Booth. The exhibition will run from January 27 – February 26, 2015, showing Monday-Friday, 12:00pm-5:00pm (or by appointment). The Sleeth Gallery is located on the first floor of McCuskey Hall at West Virginia Wesleyan College, at the intersection of East Main St and College Ave in Buckhannon, WV. Admission is free.
Provided is a multimedia exhibition combining photography and video inspired by John Greenleaf Whittier’s poem, ‘Cassandra Southwick.’ The works examine persecution, xenophobia, and redemption through landscape and place.
Booth is a Visiting Assistant Professor leading courses in art, photography and video. A Washington, D.C., native, she attended Mary Washington College and received her MFA in Art and Visual Technology from George Mason University. Her interdisciplinary practice integrates digital photography, printmaking, video, and fiber art techniques to investigate the connections between memory and history. She has exhibited her work nationally and internationally, including galleries in New York, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Toronto, and China.
