A mother of three, Sarah Winegar says her work is inspired by what happens day to day in her role as a caretaker. “I feel a constant tension between what they need and what I need. My imagery explores where our needs intersect, as well as where they contradict each other. This body of work is about the body as an offering, and caretaking not only as a physical endeavor, but a means to a higher end that both caretaker and those receiving care can achieve.”

Trained as a printmaker at the University of Utah, Winegar continues to develop her work out of Saltgrass Printmakers in Salt Lake City. “Altar 1” and “Altar 2” are from a series of works created in 2023 in which a woodblock becomes the work itself rather than a matrix from which to pull prints. No prints have been created from either work.

In this video, recorded in March, 2020 as part of an earlier 35×35 exhibition, Winegar discusses her roles as mother and artist.
