Sarah Grew is a painter and photographer whose work expands into installation, collage, printmaking and environmental art. In search of new materials she has become a beekeeper, studied native plant habitats, and worked as an artist-in-residence for a recycling facility in California. Grew relishes discovering places that are new to her and has traveled widely to expand her cultural awareness and enrich her work. She has been awarded a number of residencies including Playa, Joshua Tree National Park, Djerassi Resident Artist Program, Brush Creek, the Ucross Foundation, and the Collegeum Phaenomonologicum in Italy. Recently she installed a large site specific cyanotype piece at the Umpqua Valley Arts Center and is working on a series of paintings that examine modes of expressing temporality and cycles of time through layering visual art technologies from different periods of time.
