About Juror Sue Ann Foster
As a sculptor, instructor, and Artist-in-the-Schools, Sue Anne Foster tries to live what she teaches. She has taught around the world and in many different levels. She’s taught kindergarten to college (she’s on the faculty at CSU Sacramento), from Sacramento to Alaska to Uganda, where she taught high school and junior college while serving in the Peace Corps. She’s also an art therapist, and was the first Visual Arts Director at the Alan Short Center, a Developmental Disabilities Service Organization in Stockton, CA.
Foster’s most recent sculptures are a assemblages made of found objects. “When I started to downsize my collection of ‘stuff,’ I began to see shapes and forms in everything. En route to the thrift store to donate, a piece of chrome that looked like a head caught my eye. That was the start of this series of found-object assemblages. Recycling is also high on my agenda, so it was two-for-one and turned out to be a lot of FUN!”
Foster has an MA in Art from CSU Sacramento, and a Ph.D. in Arts Education from Santa Barbara University.
Foster completed three years at Glenwood Elementary as “Artist in the Schools,” through a grant from the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission. She is a founding member of the International Labyrinth Society and was chair of the annual conference in 2002. She has served on the board of the Sacramento Fine Art Center and for three years was president of the Valley Sculpture Artists, curating sculpture exhibitions.
