Sarah Morrison was born and raised in Chicago,. After 30 years living in the San Francisco Bay Area, she recently moved back to the neighborhood that she grew up in on the South Side of Chicago.
She now divides her time between the two places. Her work is informed by a sense of place and connection to both landscapes.
Trained as a classicist, (she taught Latin at Berkeley High School for 18 years) Sarah’s visual work is preoccupied with that which persists—both in terms of physical remains and lasting impressions.
Her work engages questions of memory and perception, permanence and change.
Recent work has been exhibited at the Stinson Beach Library and included in shows at the Berkeley Civic Center, the Triton Museum of Art, and in shows curated by Slate Gallery in Oakland.
Sarah has participated as an artist in residence at Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, and in the Bridge Program at the Hyde Park Art Center in Chicago.
