Sarah Kennedy is an artist living in the Southwest where she indulges her love of the natural world, the desert and horses. Her work ranges from energetic hand-cut ceramic compositions featuring the petroglyphs of the southwest to figurative oil paintings on linen rendered in fine detail. At her home in the Tortolita Mountains area, her studio is within yards of ancient grinding holes and petroglyph sites are nearby. This fueled her interest and curiosity about the prehistory of the southwest and rock art images left behind which are featured in her ceramic work. Sarah also uses geometric shapes and color to represent the cosmos, weather, energy and plant/land features of the desert in her ceramic compositions.
Sarah has exhibited in juried shows across the nation including the Bosque Art Classic, American Academy of Equine Art, Western Spirit Art Show, Mountain Oyster Art Show and Sale, Empire Ranch 100, and Women Artists of the West National Exhibitions. She has been represented by galleries in Santa Fe, Fredericksburg and Tucson. Among other awards, Sarah received the prestigious Eleanor B. Coble Figurative Painting Award of Excellence in 2017, Best WAOW Wildlife Award in 2015 and Best of Empire Ranch 100 in 2012. She is a member of American Women Artists, Juried Member of American Academy of Equine Art, member National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society and former President and Signature Emeritus member of Women Artists of the West.
