Originally from Providence, RI, Sarah Mizer is a Richmond, Virginia-based artist whose work ranges from billboards to small glass objects. Sarah has exhibited extensively, reaching galleries from Los Angeles to New York, Milwaukee to Houston, and including her hometowns: Richmond and Providence. Recently, her glasswork was part of a contemporary craft exhibition, Ambiguity and Interface, curated by Ray Cass and Howard Risatti at the Taubman Museum. Sarah’s work is in public collections at Alfred University and Pam and Bill Royall’s Try-Me, as well as many private collections.
While in residence at HCCC, Sarah will be working to bridge her glass installations, drawing, and billboards practices into a more cohesive body of work. She is taking time off from Virginia Commonwealth University, where she is the administrative director and assistant professor in the Art Foundation Program. Sarah also sits on the Board of Directors for 1708 Gallery. With a background in glass, she holds her MFA from VCUarts, in the Craft/Material Studies department, and her BFA from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Sarah will be with HCCC through August of 2014. Learn more about her work at https://www.sarahrbmizer.com/.
