“Thousandth Hour of the Next Journey”
Saberah Malik, of Warwick, has combined the traditional and the innovative in both her art and her life. The daughter of an Indian civil engineer, Malik was a first generation Pakistani who grew up traveling throughout Pakistan, absorbing the region’s art and culture. She received her BFA and MFA in graphic design and was awarded a National Merit Scholarship, which brought her to Pratt Institute in New York to receive a Masters in Industrial Design. Following her arranged marriage, Malik and her physician husband moved to the United States. After her children were grown Malik returned to art making, and through the practice of shibori, she created her technique of manipulating fabric into “ethereally transparent forms of stones, bottles, and other artifacts.” She has exhibited her work in solo and group exhibitions, both nationally and internationally, and has won numerous awards.

The Hunter Gallery is located in the central lobby of the William H. Drury and Richard Grosvenor Center for the Arts. Built in 1999, construction of the building was made possible by the efforts of many caring, dedicated committee members, alumni, teachers, students, parents and friends of St. George’s School. With Betsy S. Michel ’85-’89 at the helm of the Board of Trustees and Barbara van Beuren ’75 at the head of the Design Committee, the dream of building a place where St. George’s students could study art, music and theater came to fruition.
The Hunter Gallery offers students, the St. George’s community and the public an opportunity to view the work of emerging and established artists from a variety of disciplines. Throughout the year, art from galleries, private collections and artists is borrowed for shows that generally run three to four weeks. Each exhibition is accompanied by an opening reception for the artist and a gallery talk.
