Sarah Nathaniel is a working artist in her hometown of Atlanta. Her work focuses on the exploration of line through repetition and process. Self-imposed rules and boundaries are applied in process to concentrate on the importance of simplification and structure. Through this process she is able to investigate the contextual significance of the objects and materials that are used while continuously exploring line work and mark making. Her work ranges in medium from drawing and painting to minimalist installations constructed using existing materials.
Nathaniel’s work has shown in Atlanta at HATHAWAY Contemporary, Whitespec at Whitespace, The Hudgens Center for Arts & Learning, Swan Coach House, Kai Lin Art, Mammal Gallery, Downtown Player’s Club, MINT, Cherry Lion Studios, SCAD-Atlanta, and Decatur ArtHouse. Outside of Atlanta, she has shown at the Wiregrass Museum in Alabama, Sulfur Studios in Savannah, GA, and SCAD-Lacoste in France. She was nominated for a 2019 ArtsATL Luminary award in Arts Education, won honorable mention in a group exhibition at the Hudgens Center for Art, juried by Larry Walker (2017), and has been nominated twice for the Forward Arts Foundation Emerging Artist Award. Nathaniel’s formal education includes a BA in painting from Guilford College (NC) and an MFA in painting from Savannah College of Art and Design (ATL). In 2017, she attended the Vermont Studio Center Residency. She is currently a Teaching Artist at the High Museum of Art, an Arts Instructor at Kennesaw State University, and is an artistic consultant for MINT.
