ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
In the summer of 2018, Sarah Greenman produced a series of paintings depicting rivers and waterways in the Eastern Oregon region. The series was inspired by the women who settled the Eastern Oregon landscape as well as the 50th anniversary of the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act.

I’m an optimist at heart and my work reflects this. I am inspired first by color and form. Making art is a social behavior for me - I use it to interact with you and with the world around me. The work is transparent, meaning you can see what I did to achieve it. You see brush strokes and scrape marks and all the little happy mistakes. My work is not bound by a certain style or school of thought but is more concerned with energy and viewer involvement. My goal is always buoyancy, vitality, intention, and connection.
