Alison Saar

This exhibition of printed works from the permanent collection by internationally acclaimed artist Alison Saar incorporate both spiritual and political themes. Not one to shy away from
difficult subjects, Saar commonly explores topics such as race, historical biases and gender, challenging viewers in exciting ways, describing her work as “refined savagery.”

Born in 1956 to noted sculptor Betye Saar and Richard Saar, an art conservator, Alison Saar was exposed to art from both a philosophical and hands-on approach from an early age. Earning degrees from both Scripps College and the Otis Art Institute, the artist has shown world-wide and received recognition from the Smithsonian Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, the Whitney Museum in New York, and many more.
