Pedigo featured artist at Plum Gallery

December 5, 2012 | By More

Historic City News entertainment reporters have learned that Sara Pedigo, assistant professor of art and design at Flagler College, will be a “featured artist” through the end of December at Plum Gallery; located at 9 Aviles Street in downtown Saint Augustine’s historic district.

The gallery features a selection of local and regional artists and has gained a reputation for exhibiting established and mid-career artists, as well as young talent of exceptional quality.

“In a way, I am a hopeless romantic,” Pedigo told reporters. “I guess I’m romanticizing or idealizing this family structure — but not in a grandiose way — more in the mundane.”

Pedigo is a painter whose figurative works use the language of realism as a format to explore concepts of death and the creation of altered worlds. Family snapshots are her basis for creating new images. Her intention is to create what she describes as “fictional realities,” a mixture of her own past and “hybrid places.”

Pedigo has exhibited her art throughout the United States and is currently represented by Wynn Bone Gallery in Annapolis, MD. Most notably, she was included in the 2006 Portrait Competition at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery.
