A solo exhibition of new paintings by Sarah Williams.
From the gallery:
“Moody Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Sarah Williams, Off-ramp Communities. The exhibition is featured within the current Group Exhibition of Gallery Artists, on view through November 14, 2020.
The artist states- “It is my belief that art should originate through a painter’s personal experiences in her home environment. I see my whole life as preparation for the way I paint and the work I am currently making. Even though my connection to the small town farm culture that shaped me as I grew up played a major role in how I approach these works, I believe they can speak to people from a variety of places and experiences.
My perception of a specific sense of place guides me while these local settings offer abundant material. Strong emotions can be prompted by a place. Over time, ways of life shape and define the people and the spaces in which they live. I am drawn to areas and structures that show character acquired from the history and memory of the people that formed that environment.” -Sarah Williams
