Sarah Burrows is a self-taught mixed media artist, specialising in colour pencils and more recently acrylics. Sarah began her artistic journey at a very young age, however when she was 15-years-old, she entered and won her first art competition. As a young adult, she continued to enter and win several art competitions; the most significant was the ‘On the wall, Off the wall’, Queen’s Park Oval wall art completion.
As a result, Sarah’s work was featured for almost two years on the Oval wall. Since then, she has participated in several group exhibitions both locally and regionally. Sarah held her first solo exhibition in January 2012 and her second solo in August 2017. She participates in seasonal local art and craft shows and her work is currently displayed in the Hotel Normandie and Art on Purpose Dance Studio. Sarah has also been featured in several online publications.
Continuing the trend of promoting and supporting local art and culture, Uncorked Wines and Spirits Limited along with assistance and curation by The Fashion Arch presents, artist Sarah Burrows with the Children of the Sun. This is a solo exhibition of mixed media and is made up of a combination of acrylics, inks and colour pencils.
Following in the footsteps on her last exhibition New Hope, Children of the Sun explores the idea of looking outward, to find a solution to an inward problem, in other words—putting life in perspective. Currently there is a feeling of uncertainty in Trinidad and the world in general—what this exhibition seeks to remind us is that we are all part of a much greater plan or rather Universe. Our problems, as big as the may seem, are temporary and we can get through them if we work together, take care of ourselves and the environment. The exhibition is a reminder that we are all ‘Children of the Sun’.
Children of the Sun opens on Friday 1st June, from 6 to 9 p.m. and runs until June 15, during the hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. from Monday to Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
