ABOUT SARAH STARK'S WORK:
This year Sarah Stark has been working on a graphic memoir. This is the story of her condensed journey from stargazing teenager to married woman in the short span of six years. She dreamed of becoming a diplomat and traveling the world, and yet she put those dreams aside to plan a giant wedding at age 24. The story is set amidst the materialism and extremist Christian dogma of Texas in the 1980s and 90s. It shows her as the young woman she was: intelligent, talented, and unable to talk about many of the things she needed to be talking about including religion, relationships, sex, and her own dreams and desires.
For this exhibition, she has included a few panels and pages to provide a flavor of her narrative voice and her simple line drawings.
Sarah Stark is a mother, teacher and writer. She began her career as a political scientist working in Washington on issues concerning nuclear nonproliferation and peacekeeping. She currently teaches English at Santa Fe Preparatory School, and taught creative writing previously at the Institute of American Indian Arts for a number of years. Her novel, Out There (Leaf Storm Press, 2014) was selected as a Top Book by Publishers Weekly for 2014 and received a starred review. Out There was also selected as the winner of the INDIEFAB Editor’s Choice Award for Fiction Book of the Year, 2014.
