Throughout her career, Sarah Gerould has sought mixes of natural science and art. After retiring from the USGS in 2015, she moved from Virginia to Medford to pursue her art, and to hike, kayak and ski more regularly. Natural forms are the basis her work: water, rocks, vegetables and vegetation. Gerould has studied watercolor and oils under artists in Virginia and Massachusetts.

Artist Statement

My paintings are a window on our world; humorous, serious, grotesque and serene. They are an observation and a passion, an escape and a commitment. My vegetables convey, in a darkly humorous way, aspects of the human condition. I am particularly drawn to the expressiveness of root vegetables. In contrast to the vegetables, my landscapes and creatures are an escape back to places I've been, and a commitment to the natural world I love so well.
