Sarah McNeil - Artist-In-Residence
Sarah McNeil grew up in a family of antique auctioneers in a small town on the coast of Maine. She inherited from them a collector’s love of handcrafted objects, historic artifacts, and the richly layered stories behind them, all of which are still great influences on her today. In her art practice, she mines the history of medical science, outmoded technologies, and folklore, to provoke thinking about the contemporary world she lives in. She has done a residency at the Vermont Studio Center, and was the recipient of the Henry Walters Traveling Fellowship where she spent three months in Prague immersed in the studies of traditional Czech puppetry and puppet animation.
