Amy Sabrina Retrospective

MAY 12 – JUNE 25, 2017
Emily Galusha Gallery

Opening Reception: Friday, May 12, 6 – 8 pm

Bringing together examples from a lifetime of work, this exhibition honors the late Amy Sabrina (Myers), 1956 – 2013, and gives light to her imagination and talent. A graduate of the University of Minnesota, she lived and worked on her 35-acre farm, called Sweetgrass Farm, in Dalbo, Minnesota, until the end of her life. There she made pottery that celebrated, with unique wit, her love of nature.

She had an illustrious career and exhibited across the United States. Her work was displayed in solo exhibitions in galleries such as the Garth Clark Gallery in New York and Los Angeles, and in group exhibitions in institutions such as the Racine Art Museum in Wisconsin, and the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Amy Sabrina was a sales gallery artist at NCC for many, many years.

In his article, “Life’s Celebrations,” published in American Craft in September/October 2005, Robert Silberman wrote, “As an artist Amy Sabrina lets her heart in, and the results are achievements worthy of celebration” (Vol. 65: 48 – 50).
