Sara MacCulloch

Press & Blogs

For twenty years, Sara MacCulloch has worked in her studio to explore and capture the Nova Scotia landscape in oil paint, while keeping the economy and openness of a sketch.

For my work I try to complete paintings in one go- I like the sense of immediacy one can get in one session in the studio,” Sara MacCulloch.

MacCulloch received her MFA in 2019 and her BFA in 1992, both from NSCAD University (the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design). There, she particularly benefitted from the critically demanding and inspiring teaching of Gerald Ferguson. She credits him as the single most impactful influence, who enabled her to gain the necessary confidence and belief in her own abilities, and to commit herself to the unforgiving tasks of being a rigorous painter. MacCulloch has exhibited with Studio 21 Fine Art since 1996, and has also shown extensively in Toronto and New York. Her work can be found in many fine public and private collections, such as: the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, the Nova Scotia Art Bank, Sheraton Hotels, Halifax, NS, and Gotlands Kunstmuseum, Gotland, Sweden.

Sara MacCulloch at Studio 21, Halifax

Published Apr 13 2020 by Jon Claytor

How do you review a painting exhibition you do not understand? Sara MacCulloch’s beautiful landscapes at Studio 21 should not be a mystery.
