Sarah Williams | The Middle
January 12, 2024 @ 5:00 pm - February 24, 2024 @ 9:00 pm
In this new body of work, Sarah Williams continues to use her paintings as a way to honor her regional history, which she will always tie to her upbringing in northern Missouri. She now realizes that these paintings started as a way to deal with the homesickness she felt after leaving her childhood hometown to pursue an MFA degree in an urban setting. These paintings have created a type of strange souvenir of the places she has left and the structures and things she knew most intimately. Even though she eventually took a job in her home region, she has come to understand that she’ll never be home again in many ways.
