Sarah Wagner: Nuclear Family at Patricia Sweetow Gallery

The always lovely Sarah Wagner just closed her solo show at Patricia Sweetow Gallery in San Francisco. Sarah's signature silk organza creatures appear in this round as ghostly deer, quietly grazing on the gallery's concrete floor. The faces of the deer are especially well done, and Wagner's craftsmanship is exceptional, silk organza being a notoriously slippery translucent material.

Sarah and her partner Jon Brumit recently left the Bay Area for Chicago, where she is teaching at the Art Institute. It's great that Patricia Sweetow could bring her work back to SF, though no surprise since Patricia is a keen spotter of emerging talent here in the Bay Area and elsewhere.

Photos of the show are posted here.
