A new exhibition sponsored by the College of Visual and Performing Arts will explore the activity of collaboration. In the visual arts, this involves an artist shifting autonomy to another professional artist, thus giving up or losing some control in the making of the art object.

Five artists — painters, printmakers and sculptors — have collaborated in the art-making process, exploring concepts of artistic intention and ownership. They are Maria Barbosa, Steven Dobbin, Doug Moulden, Robert Sibbison and Peter Whitting.

The exhibit opens on Monday, Feb. 25, and runs through March 21 in the Fine Arts Gallery on Mason’s Fairfax Campus.

A panel discussion with the artists will be held on Feb. 25 from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Fine Arts Gallery, followed by a reception from 6 to 9 p.m. All events are free and open to the public.

The Fine Arts Gallery is located on the ground floor of the Fine Arts Building in Room B104.
