Sarah Joy Lewis
Sarah creates paintings that capture a clearly recognizable likeness of the subject re-imagined in vivid rich color. Many of her paintings are created using layers of sheer tinted acrylic glazes, carefully built up to create delicate, luminous, and vibrant color. It's important to her that a color is just as lush whether you stand two inches or 29 feet from a canvas.
Her primary subject matter is portraiture. Portraits are more than a mere physical representation of the person. A portrait reflects the subject's personality as she see's him or her, and may be influenced by how the sitter wants to be perceived. She strives to capture who she thinks the person to be, in the context of the specific painting. in addition, continuously and subconsciously she projects a part of herself into the painting. The portrait becomes a dialogue between her and the subject. Once the portrait is complete, that specific moment in the subject's life is once again interpreted by viewers and becomes a universal experience.
Food and wine pairings are a collaboration by the award-winning culinary team at 1800 Prime Steakhouse and by Eagle Distributing. The event is $35 per person.
