Sleigh, a realist painter, moved to the United States in 1961 with her husband, art critic Lawrence Alloway.

Materials consist of printed ephemera and photographic material related to educational programs, exhibitions, performances, events, and various collaborative projects. Included are administrative files, artist files, publications, correspondence, project files, audio and video recordings, and digital files produced for various projects.
