Sarah E. Webb’s background is one of many interwoven stitches. She is an artist, an independent scholar and curator, and has taught critical theory and studio production as Visiting Assistant Professor University of Rochester, and adjunct faculty Rochester Institute of Technology. Webb co-edited with Kristen Frederickson, Singular Women: Writing the Artist (UC Press, 2003), a collection of thirteen essays that considered how the female artist had been written into, and out of Art History from the Renaissance to the present. She has curated national exhibitions including: “Stories from Her” and “Absence, Excess, Loss,” and her own process-based performance work was included in The M Word: Real Mothers in Contemporary Art (Demeter Press, 2011). Sarah is also involved with engaged philanthropy, working closely with two NGO programs in India: Woman and Child Rights Campaign (WCRC) and TARA Homes for Children (New Delhi), raising awareness and opportunities for the empowerment and education of women and children in rural and urban India.
In 2005, Sarah “discovered” Monhegan with her family and they have returned every summer since, ultimately becoming summer residents in 2013. She currently serves on the Board of Trustees of the Monhegan Museum, and joined the James Fitzgerald Legacy Committee as Art Historian in 2015.
