Amherst-based artist Sarah Braman is recipient of the 2013 Maud Morgan Prize for a woman artist who has “demonstrated significant contributions, creativity, and vision to the contemporary arts landscape in Massachusetts.” Braman has received international acclaim for her transformation of humble artifacts of life in the home and on the road––used furniture, car hoods, even a camper––into transcendent sculptures using rich colors of sprayed paint or planes of cut Plexiglas. Join her in conversation with the curator of the exhibition, Jen Mergel, to learn more about her newest works and forthcoming exhibition in the Linde Family Wing (on view on the second level of the Cohen Galleria, November 23–March 30, 2014) and to celebrate her receipt of the Maud Morgan Prize.   


This is a private event for The Contemporaries.
