Sarah McNeil

Sarah McNeil grew up in a family of antique auctioneers in a small town on the coast of Maine. She had inherited from them a collector's love of handcrafted objects, historic artifacts, and the richly
layered stories behind them, all of which are still great influences on her today. Her art practice combines sculptural installations with stop motion animations.

She received her BFA in printmaking from the Maine College of Art, and a MFA from The Mount Royal School of Art at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Sarah was the 2013 Artist-in-Residence at the Pacific Northwest College of Art's Low Residency MFA Visual Studies program, a former MICA Fellow at the Bromo Seltzer Art Tower, and a 2013 Creative Capital grant finalist. She has done a residency at the Vermont Studio Center, and was the recipient of the Henry Walters Traveling Fellowship where she'd spent three months in Prague immersed in the studies of traditional Czech puppetry, and puppet animation.
