Sarah Peters.

Sculptor Sarah Peters, who received her B.F.A. from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, began her artistic career as an illustrator. She is currently pursuing her love of sculpting in Massachusetts, where she now resides and where many of her bronze public works are on permanent display. Indeed, inspired by her Cape Cod surroundings, several of Sarah's works reflect the maritime way of life. She recently finished working on a series of eleven bronze bas-relief plaques for the town of Falmouth, Massachusetts. The plaques represent many of the historic industries that were significant to the town. "I look at a lot of water," Sarah comments, smiling, "and I get to know every personality in the plaques." After each plaque was completed (a process which took ten months to complete and three weeks to cast), it was permanently installed along the sidewalk that abuts the library lawn on Main Street.

Sarah also finds inspiration for her work from interesting shapes and textures, which she incorporates into her art in many unique and whimsical ways. Such is the case with her "Alphabet Chair," in which each letter of the chair is a puzzle upon which the viewer can contemplate.

Sarah is a member of the Federation Internationale de la Medaille. Her bas-relief art medals can be found in the permanent collections of the British Museum in London and the Royal Coin Cabinet of Stockholm. Sarah's sculptures have been exhibited with much recognition in many shows worldwide.
