About

Visual artist Sarah Palmeri explores feminine identity through the lens of abstraction and mass communication by experimentation with intuitive drawing, found materials, and collage. The abstraction of recycled and reworked compositions lay the groundwork for most of Palmeri's work, which manifests as 2D, 3D, and digital forms of shape and mark making. Palmeri founded The Magazine Project in 2015, a body of work that exams how the arts and advertising can contribute to addressing social change. 

Sarah graduated with a BFA in Fine Arts from Louisiana State University in 2011, where she studied mass communication and studio art. She has worked with Think 360 Arts for Learning since early 2016, an arts education nonprofit that integrates the arts in schools and community centers around Colorado. Her work has been exhibited in Ann Arbor, Baton Rouge, Denver, Key West, Los Angeles, Taos, Santa Fe, and San Francisco, and she has been a member of Strangers Art Collective of Santa Fe, NM since 2015. Sarah is currently is living and working in Denver, Colorado.
