Alumni Spotlight: Sarah Sachs 


Sarah received her BA in Studio Art from St. Mary's College of Maryland in 2006. In 2008, she received her Masters of Art in Digital Art from Maryland Institute College of Art, and in 2009 she received her Masters of Fine Art in Photography and Digital Imaging, also from Maryland Institute College of Art. Through her fine art work, Sarah explores the dichotomy between human and digital memory, how the two influence one another, and how they are affected by natural and technological elements of decay. She hopes to create a dialogue about the relationships between personal memory, society’s collective memory, and collective cultural identity.

Teaching Collection

The St. Mary's Teaching Collection is a collection of over 1,800 paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures exhibited throughout campus buildings. Started over 20 years ago by Jonathan Ingersoll, gallery director emeritus, the Teaching Collection includes paintings and drawings by twentieth-century American artists, prints by late nineteenth-century French masters, and a small number of Asian prints and paintings. These works have been donated to the College by many individuals and organizations who share the conviction that learning in the liberal arts is greatly enhanced by the opportunity to experience the very wide variety of human expression in the visual arts.
