About Sarah McKenzie
Sarah McKenzie lives and works in Boulder, CO. Her work captures architecture in transition. Past series have focused on construction sites, abandoned structures, hotel rooms, and parking garages–spaces that are fluid rather than fixed. Along these lines, her newest body of work focuses on exhibition space–the “white cube” architecture of museums and galleries. McKenzie’s work has been exhibited at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, the Yale School of Architecture, the New Mexico Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, the Aspen Art Museum and the Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art, among other venues. Her paintings have been featured in Art in America, the New York Times, the Denver Post, the Huffington Post, Dwell Magazine, and New American Paintings. In 2012, McKenzie received a Joan Mitchell Painters and Sculptors Grant, and in 2019, she received the Alexander Rutsch Award for Painting. McKenzie is represented in Denver by David B. Smith Gallery.
