Artist Bio

Sarah McCoubrey received her MFA from the University of Pennsylvania and is a Professor in the College of Visual and Performing Arts at Syracuse University. She is the recipient of several grants, including the New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Painting, a Milton Avery Foundation Fellowship, a MacDowell Colony Fellowship, a National Endowment for the Arts Grant Award, and a New York State Council on the Arts Grant.

In her masterful realist style, McCoubrey’s paintings focus on the human landscape and how we shape the earth. Combining fantastical allegory with observational acuity, her work presses us to consider our ecological footprint and how we coexist with the land we live on. Referencing a range of art histories from the techniques of Dutch masters, the landscape tradition of the Hudson River School, and the worlds created by Hieronymus Bosch, her study of painting en plain air and sophisticated glazing allows her to create luminous paintings with intense detail.

McCoubrey has held significant solo exhibitions at institutions including the Everson Museum of Art, the Clifford Gallery at Colgate College, The Bannister Gallery at Rhode Island College, the Luther Brady Gallery at George Washington University, and the Morris Gallery at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
