Sarah Randall : My Darling Betty

Fri 15 December 2023, - Sun 11 February 2024,

My Darling Betty, by Orange-based artist Sarah Randall, is a series of still-life paintings portraying letters sent between the artist’s family members from 1934 -1936. The letters were written by adoring parents to their daughter Betty while attending boarding school.

Randall believes how we care for our loved ones is conveyed through how we care for their belongings. In My Darling Betty, the artist hopes to invoke these sentiments as well as evoke reflection and empathy within audiences for their own families.
