Press Release: New Edgewater Gallery show, Middlebury

Edgewater Gallery is proud to present July’s Featured Artist of the Month, oil painter Sara Katz, as she uses exhibition space to explore the idea of terrarium as idyllic microcosm through exaggerated and abstracted presentation in a collaboration with her brother, installation artist Elliott Katz. 

Proposing the terrarium as an example of human’s desire to control the landscape while also fulfilling a universal passion for nature’s beauty, Katz and Katz unveil their exhibition, with its melding of water, woods, and glass, at Edgewater Gallery on July 1, and celebrate its opening on Friday, July 13, from 5-7pm during the Middlebury Arts Walk. 

Sara and Elliott grew up in Cabot, Vermont on a vegetable farm/greenhouse  nursery. Sara now lives and paints in North Ferrisburgh, and serves as Assistant Director for Burlington City Arts, where she has worked since 1999. Elliott practices art in Burlington, Vermont and is managing director of Seven Below Artist Initiative, an artist residency in Westford, Vermont. 

Featured Artist of the Month: Sara Katz, in collaboration with Elliott Katz, is on view through July 31. For more information call 802.458.0098, email, or visit
