Few art venues seem less accessible than a gallery on the gated campus of an exclusive boarding school, but the Hunter Gallery at St. George’s School actually mounts some really interesting shows. (It’s also open to the public, though rumor has it the security guards can get pretty crabby.) Fiber artist Saberah Malik’s latest is entitled “Thousandth Hour of the Next Journey,” and the title derives from her latest piece, which took over twelve hundred hours to produce. Composed of hundreds of sheer polyester tiles, “Be My Guest” is inspired by shamianas, tents used for formal occasions in the artist’s native Pakistan. They’re spaces where families and groups of friends come together for momentous occasions.
