Sarabeth Dunton received her BFA in painting at the University of Michigan in 2006. Her current practice emphasizes drawing as a mode of experience. She finds inspiration in both traditional modes of landscape painting and more contemporary dialogues of abstraction, and uses intuitive processes and a personalized specific style of mark-making to created her works. For her, the act of drawing is a physical chronicle of an intimate relationship with the space in which she works. The work is the physical apprehension of an action, a memory, and an archetypal understanding of how we view and realize landscape.
After many years traveling, wandering, and transplanting herself, Sarabeth moved from New Orleans in search of a more diverse and vibrant art scene, landing in Kansas City. Sarabeth’s work has been shown in New Orleans, Kansas City, Chicago, Ann Arbor, Michigan, and internationally in Paros, Greece. Her work is part of the Kansas City Collection IV. She is a co-founder of RAD school, had writing published by a 8 1/2 X 11 press, and has been granted residency fellowships for residencies in Massachusetts, Joshua Tree, Ohio, and rural Missouri. She is currently a studio resident at the Drugstore Studios in Kansas City.
