Sarah McRae Morton – The Saw and the Wing

Artist, animal-lover, and Lancaster PA native, Sarah McRae Morton is exhibiting her new paintings in a solo exhibition The Saw and the Wing at the Somerville Manning Gallery.

Sarah’s paintings are invented portraits of her ancestors and historical figures – people from her own life, from books and paintings, and from her travels and stories learned. The events and people illustrated are not bound by time or fact, but are immersed with ghosts and artifacts from cross sections of history. Sarah’s work is wildly romantic, with an earthly palette and energetic movement.

The Saw and the Wing runs through December 15, 2018. An opening reception for the artist will be held on Friday, November 16 from 5:30pm-7:30pm

When you’ve looked at enough goddamn John Sloan paintings to last you a lifetime and anything is better painted over William Holman Hunt’s Isabella and the Pot of Basil.
