Artist Reception Tuesday, June 5th 5-7 PM

Sara Downing is a self taught American photographic artist. With visual artist parents, her work often reflects painterly and abstract forms. Much of Sara’s work over the last decade has been steeped in landscapes, portraiture and architecture. Her full-time artistic career began only recently, after Sara’s first large solo show at the Barlow in nearby Sebastopol in 2017. With the tremendous success of that first show, and a desire to finally answer a call she found impossible to ignore, she made the leap to quit her job and started her own business. That first show was, in her words;

-cathartic at best, I wanted to show many different facets on what brings me joy. This first exhibit was an
opportunity to show the breadth of that joy with freedom from a rigid theme.

With this next exhibit however, Downing travels deeper into one facet of her interest. focusing primarily on small, textural microcosms distilled from the often-labeled mundane. With intricate shadows and angular perspectives, Downing reveals the unexpected artistry and grace of a world hidden in plain sight.
