EXHIBITION: November 2022 - January 2023

Sarah Norsworthy’s thick impasto strokes manage to capture a sense of place and acutely, a sense of light, allowing the viewer to see through paint. As an artist she has worked in response to her experiences exploring the landscapes of Washington, Arkansas and Vermont through painting, drawing, fiber arts, and sculptural environments. With a strong emphasis on exploration, her scenes alternate between the natural outdoors (shores, woods, mountains) and equally adroitly spaces closer to home (parks, pathways, backyards). Her works are after-images of adventures grand and small, all very familiar to anyone living at the border of the wild.
