Sarah McEneaney Dog Heaven. 2008 egg tempera on linen. 36×48″

In conjunction with “The Female Gaze: Women Artists Making Their World,” PAFA will present the WOMAN OF THE WEEK: Sarah McEneaney.

Born in Munich, Germany, McEneaney has been living and working in Philadelphia since 1973. The artist received a certificate from PAFA in 1979 and is known for her auto-biographical paintings rendered in jewel-like colors. 

This Thursday, January 17, you’ll have the chance to meet McEneaney during PAFA After Dark (!

A founding member of Callowhill Neigborhood Association (Vice -President 2002-2011, President 2012-Present) Sarah is a visual artist who has lived and worked in the Callowhill Neighborhood since 1979. In 2003 McEneaney and John Struble founded the Reading Viaduct Project, which is dedicated to the remediation of the abandoned Reading Viaduct into a great new public park for Philadelphia.

This dream, vividly imagined in her 2008 painting, “Dog Heaven” (above) is now tantalizingly close to becoming reality.
