During the months of June – July the Smith Studio and Gallery, in Geneseo, is sponsoring an art exhibition of the paintings of Sara Peak Convery from Chicago, IL.
Sara became involved with her artwork as she was growing up in Grinnell, Iowa. Attending the University of Iowa she graduated with honors and a BFA in painting. Sara now lives in Chicago where she has obtained an advanced degree in photography at the University of Illinois, Chicago. She has been employed in positions that embrace both her art and photography education.
Ms. Convery’s recent work explores the environment that surrounds her. The imagery in her paintings discovers both inside and outside spaces that she shares with the viewer as a personal glimpse into her life. Her bold brush strokes and creative use of materials is an extension of Sara’s desire to explore her personal space.
Hours at the Smith Studio and Gallery are Tuesday through Saturday 10:00-5:00, Closed on Sunday and Monday.
