“Sara Lindkranz: A Self Portrait”

“Sara Lindkrantz: A Retrospective” to honor Big Canoe artist

The Big Canoe Artists Club will sponsor “Sara Lindkrantz: A Retrospective” from 4-6 p.m. on Sunday, June 16 at the Swim Club. The retrospective honors the work and life of a highly regarded artist, loving friend and Big Canoe neighbor who died after a long illness April 20 at her home.

“I first met Sara when I moved to Big Canoe in 2007,” said longtime friend and fellow artist Lisa Schnellinger who first met Lindkrantz through the Big Canoe Photography Club.

“Sara was such an inspiration to me. She was relentlessly positive even after years of fighting cancer, and that core glitter she had came through in everything she did.

“She was fearless in taking chances with her artwork, and jumped into many mediums: photo montage, acrylics, colored pencil, alcohol ink, collage, monotype prints, clay, and more. And if something didn't turn out, she had no problem dumping it in the trash and moving on to the next thing.”  

Schnellinger believes this retrospective will be of interest even to people who didn't know Lindkrantz well.

“Her art is worthy of study, because it came from an adventurous imagination that never stopped trying to express itself,” said Schnellinger.

Recognition for Lindkrantz’s work includes: "Ben," First Prize 2011 Julia Margaret Cameron Award Children, selected for permanent exhibition at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta; 2010 WPGA Storytelling Award; 2011 B&W Magazine Portfolio Contest award; listed among Best of the Emerging Fine Art Photographers of 2013 - Black and White Gallerist.

The show draws from her body of work, mostly digital. “In addition to the digital display,” Schnellinger said, “we will be showing some of her ceramic sculptures, which were the last artwork she completed and have not been exhibited before.”

Lindkrantz’s work is also available to view on her website https://www.saralindkrantz.com. Reprints of her work can still be ordered, with proceeds going to charity. People who own her originals are invited to bring theirs to share at the retrospective.
