Gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sunday 1 – 5 p.m. (the Galleries are closed on Mondays). The visual autobiography of Sarah Lightman. This exhibition is in cooperation with the 37th Annual Literary Festival: “The Hungry Heart is Telling You”. The Book of Sarah is an autobiographical text/image project. Begun in 1995, The Book of Sarah also references the Biblical silence of her namesake, the Matriarch Sarah, and her unpreserved voice. The Book of Sarah transforms Jewish history into contemporary visual herstory. The exquisite, meticulous and often fragmentary pencil drawings that form the majority of The Book of Sarah transform unhappy experiences into something beautiful. It seeks to distill time and experience into art that, though based on her personal experience, can also have universal appeal and resonance. The Book of Sarah will be published as a graphic novel in 2015 by Myriad Editions.
