TSU Art Gallery: Sarah Sutton


Tarleton State University’s Clyde H. Wells Fine Arts Center Gallery of Art proudly presents the second art exhibit of the 2015-2016 season, Paintings by New York based artist Sarah Sutton.

The exhibit will be on view from Sept. 29th through Oct. 30th.

Sarah Sutton lives and works in Ithaca, NY where she is an assistant professor of art at Ithaca College. She has a BA in Humanities from John Carroll University and an MFA from Kent State University. Her work is represented by Leslie’s Art Gallery in Luxembourg, EU, and has shown her work in Europe and across the United States. She has attended the Millay Colony artist residency, as well as the Sante Fe Art Institute residency funded by the Joan Mitchell Foundation.

Sarah’s paintings investigate the complexity of our instinctual need to locate ourselves within a space, our innate desire to find pattern, and the ever-present possibility of unintelligibility within the inundation of images that characterizes our current cultural landscape.
