The photographs in this body of work approach motherhood through ideas, feelings, stereotypes, and documentation. I hope the vulnerability that comes from using my own life and family as a backdrop results in photographs that become less about the individual experience and more about something greater and universal.
Every day for one year I made, edited, and uploaded a photograph for discussion to my website. By committing to this rigid, demanding photographic schedule, I mimic the rigid, demanding schedule of motherhood, allowing me to document a year of complex thoughts, ideas, and feelings.

group exhibition opening November 5, 2010

Sarah will be taking part in a group exhibition of 37  women artists whose work addresses the culturally ubiquitous role of motherhood, historically under-represented in visual art.  The exhibition is titled “Mothers” and in Chicago at the Woman Made Gallery whose vision is to ensure the equal placement of women’s art in the world.

Sarah will be displaying a piece from her ongoing Art and Motherhood project.

The exhibition runs from November 5 – December 23, 2010 with an opening reception on Friday, November 5 from 6 – 9 pm. If you can’t make it to Chicago, you can view the exhibition online.
