Opening Reception: Sara Lanzillotta
May 14, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Join us for the opening reception for our newest featured artist: Sara Lanzillotta during the Ballard Art Walk on Saturday, May 14th from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Sara Lanzillotta has been creating soft sculptures in the Seattle area since 1997. From her humble beginnings on the coveted bathroom walls of the Robbie Mildred Gallery to the magnificent walls of the Seattle Art Museum, and so many wonderful galleries in between, Lanzillotta has made a huge variety of fabric based dolls and sculptures to delight and confuse the masses.
Under her company name Devout, she has sold her many creations through shops, galleries and craft shows across the country as well as through her own website and Etsy shop. Most of her work is a blend of the phenomenally cute along with a twist of dark and strange and often in whimsical, comical themes. Her obsession with oddities, fantasy, and nature provide the backdrop, using traditional doll making as a basis to create her own unique take on the craft.
