About the Artist
Born in Washington and raised in Idaho, Sara Schroeder is a contemporary painter currently living in Miami, Florida. She dedicated time to her formal fine art education until 1998, when she decided to take an extended break to raise young children. She has since furthered her education and established her artistic practice. In her works, Schroeder explores the interplay between corporeal experience and ethereal space through highly gestural and bright abstract paintings. In 2019, the Miami Design Preservation League selected Schroeder as the Art Deco Museum’s “Featured Local Artist,” and in 2021 she was chosen as Alto’s Featured Miami Artist for the luxury ride-share company’s “Alto + The Arts” initiative. Schroeder’s work is collected by many art enthusiasts and has been included in multiple group exhibitions across Florida.
About the Taking Up Space Initiative & From Here to There
Jamie Smith of Thrive Artist Network and Kaylan Buteyn of Artist/Mother Network co-launched the Taking Up Space Initiative. As part of this initiative, female artists are challenged to put on solo or group shows in their communities to actively take up space within the world. Within this context, Sara Schroeder’s exhibition focuses on the passage of time from the onset of the Covid pandemic until now. It investigates interactions and conversations between physical and emotional experiences.
Each of the 100 small mixed media works on paper represents one such conversation, expressed through the abstract interplay of two forms of information. Holistically, the continuous body of work presents a narrative of the “there” of intuition and senses, and the “here” of our immediacy and awareness.
To Schroeder, seeing how world events affected her sense of stability, and watching her temperament and her understanding of her painting vocabulary transform over time, is a reminder that every individual has their own story. With this awareness, the artist created works that built on the idea of continuously moving forward, with glimpses of ideas and small steps moving us along towards a larger whole.
“From There To Here is a visual journey through one of the strangest times in my own life and in the history of the world,” says Sara Schroeder. “Showing this collection feels like sharing hope and encouragement, and I’m thrilled to be doing it at Art at the Citadel and under the umbrella of the Taking Up Space Initiative, joining hundreds of female artists around the world to do exactly that: contribute a small piece to help build something massive.”
