Chinelli La Fratta Gallery

Labor of Love presents oil-on-panel paintings and wire sculptures. The works are all part of a series that explores the world of immigrants south of the U.S./Mexican border who work jobs in the U.S. to send money to support those left behind in Mexico. The wire sculptures allows Sarver to express her vital connection to the plant and animal world and brings a three dimensional energy to the exhibition. The artwork, while portraying the human-interest story, allows the viewer to consider the literal and illustrative arguments of the work.

Sarver's style curiously combines the dimensional aspects of a perspective and a flat surface all in one painting.

Sarver was born in Cincinnati and attended college at the University of Cincinnati, majoring in painting. She currently resides in Houston. Her work has been exhibited at Lawndale Art Center's "Big Show" in 2013 and Art League Houston's 2010 and 2011 "Gambo." She was a finalist for the Hunting Art Prize.

On view through May 3.
