JENNIFER BELAIR SAKARIAN
2019 AUGUST EXHIBIT
Jennifer Belair Sakarian holds a BFA (2010) from Siena Heights University (Michigan) with concentration in printmaking and art history. Her MFA is from Wayne State University (2013). She has shown extensively and completed artist residencies all over the world, including Bundanon Trust in NSW, Australia, and Est Nord Est in St. Jean Port Joli, Quebec. She recently published her first book, I’m okay, okay, a collection of poetry and prints laden with emotion and personal experience. Her artwork combines diverse imagery in an abstracted, intuitive manner. Animal and plant forms and motifs rooted in the natural world help make up the artist’s visual language, speaking to the wonder and vibrance experienced in nature, always with a hint of personal narrative.
