May Art in the Library Exhibit

The Boulder Junction Public Library welcomes the public to view their May “Art in the Library” exhibit featuring art by Sarah S. Thompson. Her artwork will be on display throughout the library during regular business hours. The public is also invited to meet the artist at a reception to be held on Saturday, May 20 from 12-2 pm in the library. The reception is free, and refreshments will be served.

Sarah S. Thompson is an Assemblage artist. Assemblage is an artistic form or medium usually created on a defined substrate that consists of three-dimensional elements projecting out of or from the substrate. It is similar to collage, a two-dimensional medium. It is part of the visual arts, and it typically uses found objects but is not limited to these materials.

Sarah’s art is created in her home studio. She spent her art life piecing together objects that feel right together. She finds composing a piece of art with found objects a unique way to create something beautiful and full of mystery. Collage, painting, and mixed media all contribute to her collection of unique art.

Sarah has been answering the creative call all of her life. Growing up on an organic farm with no TV left more than enough time to exercise a vivid imagination. Southern Wisconsin’s driftless area is magnificent, but she had to stretch her creative wings. Her first taste of fine art training was at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Through scholarships and working part-time, she was able to study fine art. She moved back home intending to experience life a little more before she defined her career.

The overwhelming desire to create led Sarah back to design, and she earned a degree in graphic design and marketing. After a very successful career in graphic design and marketing, Sarah and her husband started a family. They have two wonderful children, with whom she spends as much time as possible, learning and playing amid the natural beauty of northern Wisconsin. The Northwoods has embraced her approach to fine art and teaching with an open mind to creativity and new mediums.
