Artist Statement

My long-time fascination with shadow and light patterns has evolved into painting exaggerated and elongated shadows of favorite collected items. Often shadows show the true essence of something and may even show more than the reality. There is much personal symbolism and, hopefully, the viewer can find or read much universal symbolism also.


Sally H. Lambrecht received a M.S. in Art Education from Pennsylvania State University. Her career comprised a total of 33 years teaching in the public schools of Pennsylvania and Virginia, her students ranging in age from kindergarten to college. In 1968, Lambrecht moved to South Boston, Virginia with her husband Arthur, a Westinghouse engineer and their four sons. This move prompted Lambrecht to become involved in many community art projects including the first president of Parsons-Bruce Art Association, a chapter of the Virginia Museum; and vice-chairman of the Halifax County Festival of the Arts, South Boston, Virginia.

She has attended numerous watermedia workshops at Springmaid Beach, Cheap Joe’s and Kanuga.

Lambrecht now lives in Summerfield, North Carolina and shows her current works at Uptown Artworks in Greensboro, North Carolina.
