Passages – Sarah Van Beckum

Van Beckum flyer

The show ends on September 29, 2017. Join us in the Health Sciences Library Gallery as we display Sarah Van Beckum’s latest journey into abstracting nature’s forms.

The moods and whims of nature influence my work. Making art is a deeply engaging process. As an observer by type, my art can be quiet and contemplative or energetic and aggressive. Drawing from nature’s forms, ingrained from the countryside of my youth, painting is my search for meaning – Sarah Van Beckum
