Artist Bio

Sarah C. Blanchette is a photo and fiber-based artist working out of the Detroit area. 

Through repetitive acts of hand/machine sewing and physical manipulations of the self portrait, she documents her coming of age in a digital world while embarking on a journey towards growth and autonomy in womanhood.

Since establishing her studio practice in 2015, Blanchette has exhibited nationally and online in galleries, museums, zines, blogs, and artist-run spaces. She is currently the Residency and Gallery Manager at Talking Dolls in Detroit. Blanchette also curates the Instagram page @feministartmuseum, which features artists creating work around  identity, gender, race, and sexuality.

Blanchette holds a BA in Journalism and Studio Art Photography from Oakland University and an MFA in Photography from Cranbrook Academy of Art. She is a Juried Artist Member of SAQA, the Studio Art Quilt Associates.

Show Statement

The babe exists within the wood paneling walls of her childhood basement, where all means of experimentation are a meditation on growth, womanhood, and autonomy. She is surrounded by obscured versions of her own image. Relishing in her own gaze – in a world closed off from reality.
