The ArtBridge Drawing Room is pleased to bring together Sarah Bednarek, Amelia Midori Miller and Christian Sampson in its latest exhibition, Ramshackle Kaleidoscope. Working in a variety of media from light to wood to paint, these artists’ geometric sculptures and paintings, carefully crafted with moments of exacting perfection, deliberately retain the presence of the wayward human gesture and humble hand-made mark, imbuing them with a quiet and understated transcendental beauty.

Her work has been internationally showcased in London, where she was also published in the art magazine Miser and Now (2005). Her exhibition record includes solo shows, curated shows, and group shows, both nationally and in New York. She has received numerous awards and scholarships in support of her art.
