I have participated in many group and solo exhibitions
in the US and abroad. Awards include two New Jersey State Council on the Arts fellowships
and an NEA regional fellowship through the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation.
In 2010 I received a George & Helen Segal Foundation Grant for NJ sculptors.
My work is included in many private, museum and corporate collections
as well as the US embassy in Thailand. I received a BFA in
painting from Moore College of Art in Philadelphia and an MA in art
from the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque.
My sculptures are represented by browngrotta arts
in Wilton, Connecticut. I also work in partnership with MarilynKeating
on public art and studio projects at The South Jersey Museum of Curiosities.
We also make custom designed canes and walking sticks.

Going Solo And Tandem

Selected works by Marilyn Keating and Debra Sachs

Featuring observations and navigations of our daily environment.

Stockton College Art Gallery 9/3/2014-11/9/2014


            We live and work in Gloucester City, NJ, a port town by the Walt Whitman Bridge on the east side of the Delaware River.  Here industry once thrived and recovery never quite happened.  We also share a passion for the natural world and a love of the South Jersey Pinelands.  Paddling its’ rivers is a frequent year round activity that continually informs our art making.  We each find that what lays between our once industrial home and the southern NJ shorelines is a wealth of resources that helps keep us creating reflections of our world, both individually and together.

            “Going Solo and Tandem” exhibits artworks that we created both solo and jointly.  It includes selections, from small to large, produced recently and up to 25 years ago.  Works chosen reflect the spirit of our partnership, general influences, and mutual interest in our industrial/natural South Jersey world.  The Stockton College Gallery is a gorgeous space and we are approaching it like a playground for artists.  We are filling the space with objects recovered from the attic and stripped off walls.  The image on our announcement combines several small sculptures grouped together in a “landscape” to capture a sense of what we will be exhibiting.

            We hope you can join us at the opening reception on Saturday September 20 from 5-7pm.  The gallery is located in the Performing Arts Building, K/L wing.  Parking is in lots 4-7.  The campus is beautiful.  The area is close to Atlantic City and the seashore.  Nearby is the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife refuge, one of our favorite places and a must visit for bird lovers.
