Sarah Hatch Tracing cartoons came easily as soon as I could hold a pencil. Comics, my brother’s homework, I drew constantly. By 1972, at age 18, I entered The Atlanta School of Art, where, under the supervision of Rita King, I obtained the core knowledge for my present day disciplines. This includes using subconscious impulses to guide my hand to treat the canvas, paper or wood surface in a somewhat random fashion and then tie it together with acquired painting and drawing experience. With the early seventies, came my participation in outdoor art festivals. By 1976, I was traveling and painting in Europe. In 1980, I moved to Miami, winning awards in outdoor shows throughout following year. After entering The Portfolio Center in 1983, a commercial art school, I established once and for all my natural instinct for creating the original work of art. A significant turning point in my adult life occurred when I opened Alias Gallery in May of 1985. After years of exhibiting in outdoor shows, cafes, and other galleries, often as many as ten exhibits per month, I began to focus on just a few key shows. And, in 1991, AIRI, artists in Residence International, sent me to Europe for an exhibition in Erlangen, Germany. When I returned in the winter of the same year, I was commissioned to create a special wine label for Chateau Elan winery. In1992, I started my teaching career at Callanwolde Fine Arts Center. Over the years at Callanwolde I have taught Impressionist Painting, Imaginative Painting, Artists Basic Skills, and Creative Painting: From Impressionism to the Present, and Acrylic Painting. I also began showing my work in New York City, where Wares for Art – A Gallery exhibited and sold my work for the next three years. For the next five years, I volunteered, implementing a hands on art program for the Brain Injury Association of Georgia’s annual conference. I paint and teach painting, travel when I can, and am inspired by everything I see. Most often I create with acrylics, yet I also love to work with pastels. Occasionally oil, mixed media, on paper, canvas and wood. Though I am easily attracted to the figurative, landscape and still life imagery, I have recently enjoyed a new mixed media, abstract phenomena that is flowing from my hand. I currently exhibit and sell from The American Folk Art & Framing Gallery in Asheville, NC and by invitation.
