Sarah Hulsey at Montserrat College of Art

  • Montserrat College of Art 23 Essex Street, Room H201 Beverly, MA, 01915 United States (map)

Sarah Hulsey's work is concerned with the hidden, structural beauty of language. Language is a deeply human trait that we use in every aspect of our lives, while being essentially unaware of how it works. From a very young age our minds are in a highly receptive state, listening for the patterns, prosody, and regularity of which all languages are composed, but by adulthood we no longer notice these things. Her work draws attention back to those patterns deep in our minds and the rich, varied beauty they contain.

Sarah Hulsey received a BA in Linguistics from Harvard, a PhD in Linguistics from MIT, and an MFA in Book Arts/Printmaking from the University of the Arts, Philadelphia. This fall, she will have a solo show, Iterations, at the Walter Feldman Gallery in Boston (October 14-November 13, 2016), in conjunction with receipt of the 2016 Walter Feldman Fellowship for Emerging
Artists in New England. She has also had solo shows at Gallery 263 in Cambridge and the Printmaking Gallery at the University of the Arts, as well as a two-person show at Maud Morgan Arts in Cambridge. She is the organizer for the show Liber Mundi, a book arts and zine show hosted in the Carol Schlosberg Alumni Gallery on view: October 19 - November 19, 2016.
