Southeast professor's artwork presented in New York

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KRCU) - Sarah Riley, the Interim Chairperson of the Art Department at Southeast Missouri State University, was recently accepted to present work in the Viridian Art Gallery In New York City.

After being asked to present her work to the gallery in the Chelsea Art District in New York, Sarah Riley was accepted as an affiliate to the gallery along with 6 other artists.

Riley is currently exhibiting 4 of her works, which consist of watercolor paint, graphite, collage, and mixed media.

According to Riley, the themes that she portrays with her art mainly represent femininity and autobiographical moments from the artist’s life.
