Seeing Sackville through the Owens Art Gallery Collection

Two adults sit in arm chairs. Between them is a small table with a wooden display shelf that holds a selection of small publications. While one of them reads a publication, the other peruses the shelf. Behind them is a sign with text that reads "TEENY TINY ZINE LIBRARY".

Studio 360°

An up-close look at artists' working spaces

In a gallery, children sit on folding stools examining wooden furniture on display. They hold pencils and clipboards and work in small booklets. A studnet in the foreground holds the handle of a magnifying glass that rests on the clipboard on their lap.
