(3/22/14) – The Janice Mason Art Museum is pleased to present An Island is Unreliable, a new exhibition featuring work by sculptor Cody Arnall and photographer Sarah Phyllis Smith.

The exhibition will open with a reception for the artists 6-8 p.m. Saturday, March 22, and will remain on view through April 26, 2014.

Both artists currently live and work in Murray, where they work in the Department of Art & Design at Murray State University.
