It is rare to find a fine painter who also is a classical cellist. Sarah Hartshorne is both an accomplished musician and a painter--but there's more. She also had a life teaching throughout the Americas, and an incarnation as a mental health professional--truly a renaissance woman.
It is this wealth of experience that informs what finds its way onto her canvases: rich, generous, deceivingly simple, incredibly nuanced. In the artist's own words:
"My goal is to capture the unique in the ordinary, the beauty in the mundane. Like the impressionists, I paint from everyday life and the world around me, in order to share what I see what so often goes unnoticed....the unusual angle of a fork next to a gracefully draped napkin, the way a fly lands to busy itself on a flower petal....The work grounds the viewer in concrete reality as well as the infinite and ever-changing possibility of the human and natural environment."
Sarah Hartshorne has exhibited in numerous one-woman and group shows including: New Mexico Arts & Crafts Fair, MasterWorks 2008 and 2009 Group Shows, Placitias Visual Arts Series, the New Mexico Arts League 80th Anniversary Juried Show plus many more. She is currently represented in New Mexico by Matrix Fine Arts, 3812 Central NE in Albuquerque.
Sarah Hartshorne paints in oil on large canvases. Her oil painting Lily is 24"x30"
