Monroe City, 2010, oil on panel, 30 x 30 inches

Painting saturated, contemplative scenes of small-town and rural Texas, artist Sarah Williams is scheduled to mount a solo exhibition of new work at the Art Museum of Southeast Texas in Beaumont, Texas in 2013. Dedicated to exhibiting artistic talent in Tex
as and southeastern states, AMSET boasts a collection of modern & contemporary art and regional folk art, this will be Williams' second solo museum exhibition.
Closer in mood to Edward Hopper than Ed Ruscha, these paintings speak of the North Texas-based Williams' connection to the rural Missouri where she grew up. ... Some of the newest works, inspired by a recent return home marked by unusually clear night skies, depart from strict realism to include constellations, adding a mystical touch to her night scenes." Douglas Brit, 29-95 Art
