We invite you to join us at our next meeting on November 18, 2019 for food, fun and fellowship! Our presenter this month will be Sara Schneckloth.

Sample of artwork by Sara Schneckloth

Sara will show drawings from current projects underway, including work from the San Juan Basin badlands of New Mexico. “Since 2014, I have made artwork centering on the natural landforms and vernacular architecture of the American Southwest. I have recently started integrating materials I collect by hand from the landscape into my drawings, including natural charcoals and a range of iron oxide pigments. This process invites a viewer to consider both the history and substance of the drawing materials and the terrain upon which they stand. These drawings seek to convey the history and physicality of the forms I encounter, while evoking living, natural, systems.”

Her studio practice began in the early 1990s in San Francisco; she has since created and shown artwork in South Africa, France, Norway, the UK, and in over 80 group and solo exhibitions in the United States. Sara has held numerous artist residencies and led collaborative drawing workshops across the US and UK, including public drawing events at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the OXO Center in London, and curates the Seed Cultures Archive, a digital project in conversation with the Svalbard Global Seed Vault in the Arctic Circle.
