The University Libraries is excited to announce the opening of a major Gilbert & Sullivan exhibition, “Oh, Joy Unbounded…”: A Celebration of Gilbert & Sullivan, featuring items from the David and Annabelle Stone Gilbert & Sullivan Collection.
The Mason community is invited to join us for an exhibition opening celebration from 3:30 to 5 p.m. on Thursday, March 30 in the Libraries’ Special Collections Research Center on the second floor of Fenwick Library (Room 2400). The program will open with remarks by Rick Davis, Dean of the College of Visual and Performing Arts, and will include a tour of the exhibition by David Stone, who we have to thank for amassing this stunning collection of Gilbert & Sullivan memorabilia.
Three galleries in Fenwick Library are dedicated to displaying items from the Stones’ remarkable collection, which will be on view through May. The exhibition is part of a larger celebration of the famous duo, which the Libraries and the College of Visual and Performing Arts are coordinating at Mason. In addition to the exhibition, there will be performances and a scholarly forum.

Talking with the Artists
Thursday, May 15, 2014
Graduate Assistant Ceci Cole Mcinturff interviewed two of the artists featured in the exhibit Women’s Voices/Women’s Visions. Stephanie Booth and Asma Chaudhary, both graduates of Mason’s MFA program in the School of Art, discussed their works in the exhibit and their motivations and inspirations as artists. Four works from Ms. Booth’s series Spinster are featured in the exhibit along with Ms. Chaudhary’s work She’s Got Way Too Many Feelings.
As you can see, the interviews were conducted in Fenwick Gallery allowing the artists to discuss their work in the exhibit space.
Look for the interviews this summer here on the gallery website.
