Don’t Miss It! The World Through Watercolor

The Lake Placid Center for the Arts (LPCA) is presenting “The World Through Watercolor,” a group art show featuring four of today’s most acclaimed watercolor artists — Laurie Goldstein-Warren, Tim Saternow, Thomas Schaller and Sarah Yeoman — from August 3 through September 15, 2018.

The show is the brainchild of Sarah Yeoman. The recruitment of other three artists has been years in the making. As Yeoman describes, what started as entering in the same shows at the Salmagundi Club in New York and other American Watercolor Society exhibits, lead to mutual admiration for each others work and eventually has grown into friendship. When organizing The World Through Watercolor, the choice of artists was easy. Yeoman explained, “Each artist is so unique in their approach. This is what makes this show so special. No one else paints they do.”

“Marcy Trail-Adirondacks” (watercolor, 21×29 in.) by Sarah Yeoman

Sarah Yeoman
Sarah Yeoman is an award-winning American watercolor artist and a new signature member of the American Watercolor Society for 2017. She also has signature membership in the Philadelphia and Delaware Watercolor Societies. Her mastery of reflections, unique surface layers, and unusual perspective clearly sets her apart from the crowd.

Living in Delaware in the northeastern United States, she is recognized for her command of light narrative and strength of story. She is inspired by Winslow Homer and John Singer Sargent and in the summer, Sarah follows Winslow’s footsteps in the Adirondack Mountains of New York State, hiking and paddling in remote locations where she paints and collects references. She is equally at home in urban and lush garden settings; she lives on a private garden estate and draws on the greenhouses and gardens for inspiration, but also finds beauty in nearby Philadelphia and its rich architectural and human vibrations. Her years as a singer/songwriter flow through her process in the melodious and lyrical qualities of her paintings.
