Juror: Sarah Holl is an innovative mixed media painter and sculptor who has numerous works displayed in public spaces around Cape Cod and is currently based in Dennis. She originally developed her niche at Scargo Pottery in her work with large scale ceramic installations, which can be found at places like Cape Cod Hospital and the restaurant the Naked Oyster in Hyannis. Sarah spend a brief amount of time at the Art Institute of Boston. However, her major influence was time spent as an apprentice with artists such as Sam Feinstein, Cynthia Packard and, of course, her father, Harry Holl. She shares her passion for the arts on a daily basis by being a mentor for numerous interns of the Cape Cod Museum of Art and also by teaching at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod in South Yarmouth. Sarah’s remarkable work continues to transform as she blurs the world of canvas and clay.
