Artist in Residence: Sarah Phyllis Smith

Presented by AIR Serenbe

Sarah is a 2018 artist-in-residence with Fuel & Lumber Project Residency, which will provide The Fuel & Lumber Company founders, Amy Pleasant and Pete Schulte—and a set of artists they select—the time and space needed to develop an exciting new exhibition to be installed in Whitespace Gallery in July of 2018. This Project Residency, designed to bring production and presentation together in one season, offers a rare opportunity to support artists and curators (and artists who are also curators) and to directly link our residency program with an Atlanta gallery.

Originally from Middletown, New York, Sarah Phyllis Smith currently lives in Chicago where she teaches photography at Chicago State University. She received a Master of Fine Arts from The University of Iowa and a BFA from Murray State University. Recent exhibitions include Where the Great Lakes Leap to the Sea at The Shed Space in Brooklyn, NY, Sharpless at Fluorescent Gallery in Knoxville, TN, and Developed Workat the Midwest Center for Photography in Wichita, KS. Sarah’s work has recently been featured by several online publications including Don’t Take Pictures Magazine, Light Leaked, AINT-BAD Magazine, Vulgaris Magazine and Locate Arts. Sarah currently serves as the Assistant Artistic Director of the New York State Summer School of the Arts: Media Arts program.
