Spring street Gallery is pleased to host featured guest artist, Sarah Warda’s show titled “Island Light.”
This show features award winning artist Sarah Warda’s homage to the beauty that is Block Island.
Since her early years, Sarah, a Connecticut resident, enjoyed summers and holidays on the island while visiting her aunt, a longtime year-round resident.
She has a deep rooted connection and love of the island, which is evident in her work. Through careful observation her use of color and light as well as a personal visceral response, she is able to evoke a subtle and varied mood to her beloved Island subject.
Sarah’s formal training began learning classical realism at The Lyme academy of Fine arts, The Art Students League of New York, as well as copying master works in museums throughout Europe. Since then she has found her own voice as an artist focusing on intimate and spiritual portrayals of the subjects she paints.
Throughout her career she has shown extensively throughout the region including The Slater Memorial Museum in Norwich, Conn., The New Britain Museum of American Art, and the Mayor’s Invitational art show in New Britain, Conn. Most recently, she was chosen for a country wide competition to paint a 20-foot mural for the city of Hartford, Conn.
Please Join Sarah at the gallery on Tuesday, July 3 from 5 to 7 p.m. to view her collection of Block Island scenes, and enjoy some wine and appetizers, too.
