New York, NY, April 06, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- As a child, Sarah Hauser always loved the 5 and 10¢ stores and with each trip would wonder what little treasure she would find there. That fascination has continued through the years, and has evolved into her current series of works on paper, “99¢ Store Miracles”. The “models” for these works are toys which were purchased at 99¢ stores. She sets them up in ever-changing miniature landscapes in her studio.
Sarah works with a variety of media, constantly finding new ways to combine them. For this exhibition, she has been working with printmaking and drawing media in combination with gouache, inks and metallic paints.
Sarah Hauser was born in San Francisco, and has lived in New York since 1979. She studied drawing at the Art Students League and Spring Studio; sumi-e painting with Sensei Koho Yamamoto, Gan-Yu and Sung-Sook Setton; and drawing, painting, printmaking and papermaking at Cooper Union, Manhattan Graphics, the Lower East Side Printshop, Kathy Caraccio Printmaking Studio and Dieu Donne Papermill. Her exhibitions in the U.S. and abroad have included Woodward Gallery (NYC), International Print Center of New York, Barrett House, Noho Gallery (NYC), Pen and Brush Gallery (NYC), Purdue University, Woman Made Gallery, Hiram Blauvelt Museum, Lake George Arts Project, Washington Printmakers Gallery, Dean Lesher Regional Center for the Arts (California), Nommo Gallery in Kampala, and KIWA Exhibition and Tour in Japan. Her work has been published in CALYX, Simple Printmaking and Japanese Woodblock Printing. She has made prints at Manhattan Graphics, Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop and the Lower East Side Printshop.
Sarah is represented by Woodward Gallery in New York City, where, in 2004, she had a solo exhibition of drawings, prints, and sculpture, entitled “Sarah Hauser’s Geneticircus”.
