Sara Ransford received her BFA from CU Boulder (1984), where she studied under Betty Woodman and Anne Currier. She has been an artist in residence at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass Village, CO and has also taught workshops there and across Colorado. In 2001 she attended Alfred University, and in 2011 was awarded The Red Brick 2011 Artist Tribute from red Brick Center for the Arts.
Her exhibition record includes the Aspen Art Museum, Arvada Center for the Arts, Harvey Meadows Gallery, The Michael Warren Contemporary Gallery, Anderson Ranch Arts Center, San Angelo Center for the Arts in Texas,  Western Colorado Center For The Arts, Las Cruces Museum of Art, Evelyn Siegel Gallery, and the Foothills Art Center, among others. Sara writes about her work, “I explore the natural world in my sculptural forms. I am fascinated by the complexity in nature, and how that complexity reflects itself in our own world. The forces of erosion, the aspect of time, and things being created over eons, only to be changed in a single moment can create such vulnerability and duplicity in things we do not anticipate changing. These components culminate to represent the monumentality of even the most intimate, complex spaces.”

    PS Your artwork is AMAZING. The crop circle series is especially moving. I am excited to see your work in person.
