Murray State University Galleries and the Department of Art & Design present Variety Meat, an exhibition in printmaking by Sarah Ellis, on view in the Clara M. Eagle Upper Gallery from August 20, through October 3, 2019.
Ellis grew up in Ohio with a love of collecting, craft, and questioning everything around her. After earning her BFA from the University of Akron in 2014, she knew that she wanted to continue her education as a maker. She received her MFA in Studio Art from the University of North Texas in May 2018. Ellis is currently a member of the Art & Design department at Murray State University and instructs a wide range of courses including Lithography, Silkscreen, Introduction to Printmaking, Introduction to Sculpture, and Foundation Drawing. In addition to teaching, she also serves as the Secretary on the Executive Board of Southern Graphics Council International. She maintains an active CV including national and international exhibitions, publications, curatorial work, and academic conference presentations.
About her work, Ellis writes, “Everything I make is process-heavy and is totally unashamed to live on paper. Lithography, screen print, relief, and observational drawing are my rituals. Certain objects such as thimbles, insects, and candy find their way into multiple works, often referring to my own childhood preoccupations. The specific subject matter is selected on a whim, either from an anecdote that someone has shared with me about a personal collection or through intriguing literary references.”
Admission to Variety Meat is free and open to the public.
Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Friday 8 to 4:30.
