Sarah Meredith-Dishong is a Colorado native and raised in Grand Junction. She has been involved in the Grand Junction art community most of her working life. As a professional picture framer and amateur artist, she has worked closely with many of the talented artists in our community.
She hopes her wide variety of hobbies (including painting, camping, rock-hounding, hiking, photography, and even playing with her grandsons) will help offer a unique perspective for the future of the Grand Junction art community.
While running an art gallery on Main Street, she used her 25 years of experience to provide custom picture framing for many local clients and artists. On her down time, she will be found enjoying a quiet time with her family, painting or indulging in the breathtaking camping opportunities offered by the local landscape.
"Artists of every caliber: painters, musicians, dancers, actors, potters, etc., must come together to make our community stronger in artistic presence.", is a firm belief of hers. Sarah's philosophy on developing a strong art community is not for personal gain, but for truly seeking to build a stronger, more attractive, and compelling community. She believes that every creative industry brings a special element to our Grand Valley, increasing its appeal to become a cultural hub for Western Colorado.
