Charlotte artist Sara Bridgman presents a solo exhibit in the Amy E. Tarrant Gallery and an opening reception on Friday, May 9 at 5:30 pm. The exhibit, Retrospective Works of Sara Bridgman 1967–2014, can be seen in the gallery on Saturdays through August 2. Bridgman also gives an artist’s talk on Saturday, June 21 from 2-4 pm.  

Bridgman’s art began in the 1970s with etchings and she later incorporated oil painting into her work. She spent a good deal of time in the 1980s exploring landscapes. It was during this period that she formed a strong bond by using a practice she calls “using the magic and wonder and developing the spirit of art and sight.” Working in the 1990s, Bridgman worked tirelessly and quietly and became “close to being with the power and intelligence of life itself.”

Bridgman’s paintings of Mary Francis La’Monge began when she envisioned Mary Francis wearing a see-through dress with daisies all over. Mary Francis is an inspirational presence in Bridgman’s art.

Bridgman studied art at the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts, the Boston Museum School of Fine Arts, and she spent four years studying etching at The School of Visual Arts in New York, NY. Her work has been shown at Herbert F. Johnson Museum, Ithaca, NY; Saint Michael’s College, Colchester, VT; Pierson Library, Shelburne, VT; Webb & Parson Gallery, Burlington, VT; and most recently at JDK Gallery, Burlington, VT.
