Sage Lewis is an interdisciplinary artist investigating the connections between material process and concept. She works through varied media including drawing, sculpture, installation, textiles, print, photography, and video, to translate images into multiple outcomes.
Lewis recently completed a Project Space Residency at the Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, New York and 10-month Artist-in-Residence Fellowship at Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar. While in Qatar she set up a darkroom for students to learn analogue processes and received a Faculty Research Grant to study and teach the process of carbon printing. Work that Lewis created in Qatar has spurred her current research into space analogues – places on earth that are analogous to other planets. A forthcoming artist book titled Mars Analogues will be published by the Visual Studies Workshop. Recent exhibitions include Temporary Surface at the Hamad bin Khalifa University Art Gallery in Doha, Qatar, Material Inference at the Denison Museum in Granville, Ohio, and Fixed/Fluxed at Burlington City Arts in Burlington, Vermont. Lewis has taught at The Ohio State University, VCUQatar, and been a visiting artist at Denison University (Granville, OH), College of the Atlantic (Bar Harbor, ME) and Hartwick College (Oneonta, NY).
In addition to her work as a visual artist, Lewis has held positions as a curator and organizer of exhibitions and special projects at the Portland Museum of Art in Maine and the Institute of Contemporary Art at Maine College of Art. Lewis holds an MFA in Painting & Drawing from The Ohio State University and a B.F.A. in Painting and Art History from Maine College of Art. She is currently based in Tunbridge, Vermont and Brooklyn, New York.
