Sarah Giannobile Brings Projections Exhibition to STL

Posted on November 15, 2019 in Art Media Releases

Sarah Giannobile's "Projections" exhibition now greets travelers in Terminal 1.

A St. Louis artist is showcasing abstract print works at St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL) that embodies celestial like forms and aerial-like weavings found in nature.  Sarah Giannobile brings her three-piece Projections exhibition to Terminal 1, which is on display near the A Concourse entrance.

Giannobile says her colorful compositions, Pink Lotus, Lily, and Perseids, are inspired by dreams and memories of past experiences. Upon archival prints, Giannobile uses a mixture of calcium carbonate and polypropylene resin to build up layers of symbols and forms that combine into a whole new narrative.

Sarah Giannobile is an independent artist in the St. Louis, Missouri suburb of Webster Groves.She earned a BFA from Webster University and MFA degree from Fontbonne University. She received a scholarship to attend the Anderson Ranch Arts Center under the study of artist, William Christenberry.  

Visitors to Concourse C can view another of Giannobile’s works, Dream of Flying, fabricated as a glass screen through a 2012 collaboration with Franz Mayer of Munich. Dream of Flying is located at Gate C18. You can view the artist’s original art work for the glass screens in the exhibit, From Paper to Pane, which is located near her latest works in the Terminal 1 Lower level. Projections will be on display through April 2020 as part of the Lambert Art & Culture Program’s temporary exhibitions program. The program is supported by the Regional Arts Commission of St. Louis.
