    Hunter College is pleased to present American Girls, a solo exhibition by Sarah Hollars.  The exhibition consists of small mixed media drawings on velum, each stemming from the question: “Where does the singular experience/memory stand in relation to the universal?”

    In American Girls, Hollars culls imagery from deeply personal memories as well as public sources including the internet and print materials.  Animals, houses, pattern, the female figure, and highly saturated hues coalesce as the individual and common are woven together on the page.  Treated with equal weight, images originating from both the shared and the private are forced to take part in the creation of an alternative dialogue with history and meaning where the collective is not privileged over the individual or vice versa.

    Born in 1983 in southeastern Oregon, Hollars received an MFA in Painting from Hunter College, New York; a BFA in Painting from the University of Oregon, Eugene; and a BA in Interdisciplinary Art from the University of Washington, Seattle.  Currently Hollars lives in Brooklyn, New York and is an adjunct professor at Hunter College, New York. 

    Gallery will be open Monday - Friday, 2:00-6:00 pm

    Viewing by appointment for non-Hunter individuals
