I’m so excited about this opportunity!!! Stay tuned for details on my project!
The Research Vessel Atlantis will be my home for 2 weeks this summer.
The Atlantis is about 254 feet long, has 3500 sq ft of research lab space, support a crew of 60 and is host to Alvin, a deep ocean submersible. I can’t wait!
Thank you Sitka and the Science Team.
Here is the blurb from the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology newsletter about me:
We are excited to welcome Sarah Grew as the next Artist at Searesident. Sarah will spend ten days on the oceanic research vessel, Sikuliaq. She will be interacting with a scientific team gathering data on the dynamics of mesozooplankton food webs at different depths and during different seasonal currents off of the Oregon and California coast. This is the fourth Artist at Sea research trip in partnership with Oregon State University and with grant funding from the National Science Foundation.
Sarah Grew is a painter and photographer whose work expands into installation, collage, printmaking and environmental art. In search of new materials she has become a beekeeper, studied native plant habitats, and worked as an artist-in-residence for a recycling facility in California. Grew relishes discovering places that are new to her and has traveled widely to expand her cultural awareness and enrich her work. She has been awarded a number of residencies including Playa, Joshua Tree National Park, Djerassi Resident Artist Program, Brush Creek, the Ucross Foundation, and the Collegeum Phaenomonologicum in Italy. Recently she installed a large site-specific cyanotype piece at the Umpqua Valley Arts Center and is working on a series of paintings that examine modes of expressing temporality and cycles of time through layering visual art technologies from different periods of time.
