Guerrieri Art Space Showcases Works by Sarah Wilhelm January 12-February 27SALISBURY, MD---The Guerrieri University Center Art Space hosts the exhibit “Sanctuary” by Salisbury University alumna Sarah Wilhelm from January 12-February 27.
Earning her B.F.A. from SU last spring, Wilhelm grew up in Hebron, MD. She said the beauty of the Eastern Shore inspired her photography.
“It takes patience and knowledge of the subject to capture the scene in a way that fully displays the feeling of grandeur that the moment truly contains. When photographing a scene, I take in all of my surroundings and then focus on a certain feeling that I want to portray. Color and composition mold my vision and determine when I hold down the shutter and where I focus my lens. Anyone can take a picture of waves crashing on the shore or a towering mountain, but in order to capture that particular moment of awe, the artist has to find the right angles at the right time.
“This is when these landscapes become more than just beautiful scenes; they have now become planned portrayals of a natural sanctuary that needs to be recognized and respected.”
The Art Space is located in the Guerrieri Center’s second-floor concourse. Admission is free and the public is invited. For more information call 410-543-6247 or visit the Art Space website at http://www.salisbury.edu/guc/artspace.
