To Practice These Principles in All My Affairs

Kristin Sarette

May 27, 2021 - August 21, 2021

Xcel Energy Gallery

Using the chromatic spectrum of vibrant colors blended into their complements, Kristen Sarette’s latest exhibition of lithographic work gives us the opportunity to experience color and form saturated in a never-failing sense of optimism. Exhibited through the whimsical construction of print media and wondrous visions in three-dimensions, works in To Practice These Principles in All My Affairs: Kristin Sarette were created during a time of self-introspection and redirection. The resulting works allow the viewer to find the relevance in the totality of spaces and energy between transformation—continuing cyclically, with the present influencing the future, and moving forward.

Kristin Sarette currently is living and working in Logan, Utah, and was born and raised in the mountains of central New Hampshire. She has traveled and lived extensively throughout the United States. She is a graduate of Tamarind Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she received an abundance of her education in collaboration and lithographic printing. She holds a BFA in Printmaking from Plymouth State University, New Hampshire, and MFA in Printmaking from Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana. 

Plains Art Museum thanks our generous PlainsArt4All members and donors, and our Organizational Partners for their support. Additional support provided by The McKnight Foundation, Bush Foundation, The Arts Partnership, The FUNd at Plains Art Museum, and the North Dakota Council on the Arts, which receives funds from the North Dakota Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.

No Time For Despair

To say that right now is the ideal time to make art that speaks directly to the people about social justice is an understatement. Because the very nature of art is to undertake or assume the role of a healer by shading light on the human condition.
