Sarah Stahl is 19 now, but as an infant, she was adopted from Russia by a single mother in Richardson. For her senior International Baccalaureate project last year,
Sarah created a series of artworks depicting her
feelings about being adopted and her life here in North Texas. She will be at the March 1 reception (home for Spring break from college).
Sara notes, “Through my artwork, I’ve attempted to illustrate my story as a young adopted child, facilitated by pictures, memories and stories shared by my adoptive mother. One huge question that adopted children have is, “What if?” What if my adoptive family never found me or what if a different family found me first? My concentration has been a therapeutic process. I am no longer ashamed of my past but now embrace it.”
The gallery is open during normal business hours. The library is located at 300 N. Allen Dr. Call 214-509-4911 for more information.
