The Miller’s Daughter Sally Packard

January 22, 2000 – February 26, 2000

Sally Packard’s exhibition titled, “The Miller’s Daughter,” was derived from the fairy tale, Rumplestiltskin. The installation was based on the act of human labor with specific reference to the value of artistic labor/creation and its results. The installation filled the Mezzanine Gallery with 50-yard lengths of wide, stiff netting machine sewn down the center. The physical work radiated from a corner, deepened by the overplay of audio conversations. The artist lived in Denton, TX at the time of the exhibition.
