Let's Grow Together
Sarah LaPierre invites Rosemary Square residents and visitors to grow and create a canvas of blooming flowers together. This community-based project, running from August to October, serves to remind us that little positive actions add up and make a difference. The large-scale canvas will be set-up on an easel outside the studio door on days Sarah is on location. Guests are encouraged to knock for paint, sanitize hands, and paint a flower. All are welcome to join in growing this garden of flowers, no age requirements or special skills required. The style, color, and size of the flower is up to the guest.
About Sarah LaPierre
Sarah LaPierre (Florida, 1991) is a painter based in West Palm Beach, Florida. She has been exhibiting with fine arts festivals and galleries throughout the state for over 10 years, including a current exhibit and collaboration within The Garden Shoppe in Rosemary Square. Her heavily textured and vibrantly colorful paintings are inspired by her love of local flora and fauna and spending time outside, viewing each painting as an act of discovery, appreciation, and celebration of the subject. As a second generation artist Sarah’s late father, Joseph LaPierre, remains one of the biggest influences to her work, having passed down the love of palette knife techniques which has become a principal characteristic of her "thick paint" impasto style.
