Sarah DePetris is a Dallas-based artist whose practice integrates painting, installation, and sculpture. She makes multi-dimensional drawings that capture the energy and potential of the almost and the not-yet-made. Abstracting imagery of found piles of rubble and construction debris, her works are bridges between the real and imagined. DePetris exhibits her work nationally and across Texas. She has had numerous recent solo exhibitions, including at Arts Fort Worth and at Tank Space in Houston. She received a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Artist Grant in support of her summer 2023 exhibition at Box 13 ArtSpace. DePetris created a large-scale public art installation at the Art Tooth ArtSouth Box in Fort Worth while participating in the Art Tooth artist studio residency at Muse. Her works are included in the permanent collections of Capital One and the University of Texas at Tyler. DePetris received her BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2009 and an MFA from the College of Visual Arts and Design in Drawing & Painting in 2023. In addition to her active studio practice, DePetris also works as a studio art and design instructor.
