“Impact” explores the motivations of the artist to create. We ask the artist to answer through their artwork, “What inspires you? Who or what is the driving force behind your need to create? What has left an impression on you that lead you to become the artist you are today?” Whether it is a mentor, an event, a concept, or a personal revelation, this exhibition examines the many avenues which impact the contemporary artist.

Sauer's woven sculptures often consist of pairs or small groups and explore human relationships, particularly those in her own life.
