“The Eavesdroppers” © Sarah Pollock
Name: Sarah Pollock
Bio: Originally from southern Wisconsin, Sarah Pollock began her artistic career as a colour stylist for Walt Disney Features Animation. She now works in central Pennsylvania, often outdoors, directly on location. She also finds inspiration in the natural and urban scenes that she encounters on her travels throughout the United States.
Sarah began exhibiting in 2003 and her paintings are in private collections throughout the country. Sarah has won numerous awards in competitive national juried exhibitions, including the 2004 Pastel 100, in which her cityscape, Homeless, Downtown D.C., was featured.
Over the past several years, Sarah has served as a board member for the Maryland Pastel Society and the Art Alliance of Central Pennsylvania. She is also a member of the Mid-Atlantic Plein Air Painters Association. Sarah teaches a class on colour for beginning artists at the Art Alliance of Central Pennsylvania during the fall of each year.
In 2010, Sarah published From My Easel: A Celebration of Pennsylvania’s Black Moshannon State Park. The book features five years of her plein air paintings from the park as well as a history about this location. One half of the proceeds from the sale of each book will be donated to benefit the park.
Sarah’s works can be seen at the State College Framing Company and Gallery in State College, Pennsylvania, and the William Ris Gallery in Stone Harbor, New Jersey
Subjects: Cityscapes; Landscape
Style: Loose, painterly. Sarah states: “Light at the edge of day, near sunset or sundown, is most intriguing to me. I’m attracted to landscapes with dramatic angles, impressive skies, and natural bodies of water. In my cityscapes, I emphasize the beauty of the everyday. These paintings capture a range of subjects, from dynamic, down-the-street views to intimate portraits of anonymous individuals.”
