Sweaterweather by Sara Varon

Sweaterweather by Sara Varon was reviewed by the blogRead Now Sleep Later. One highlight: “Her stories have the cumulative warming effect of a fuzzy-soft sweater, warm socks, and the best cup of hot cocoa.”

What have SVACE faculty members been up to? We have exciting updates from Keith Mayerson, Elise Engler, Elizabeth Sayles, and Steve Brodner!

Keith Mayerson opened My American Dream, a solo show and retrospective at Marlborough Chelsea! Like a bride’s attire, the show combines “Something old, something new, something borrowed!” Keith’s new paintings mix with “vintage” work dating back to 1997 – including paintings borrowed back from private collections and museums! It’s a museum-level show for a museum-level artist.
