SALLIE GODWIN

Assemblage artist Sallie Godwin said that as a child, she’d escape to a world of her own invention, a well-ordered world where everything made sense. She’s still doing that in her art. Although she works in many mediums, each piece brings together different, often disparate, elements that make a harmonious whole.

Sallie’s collages often feature analogous color schemes that contrast with dramatic juxtapositions of geometric shapes. In her works with found objects, she uses deconstructed costume jewelry, children’s toys, and game pieces to tell stories that often bring a smile to the viewer.

Storytelling was important in Sallie’s first career, journalism. A native of Virginia, she earned a degree in journalism at the University of South Carolina, where she also took art history and graphic design. She moved to Oklahoma in 1981 and began a career as a reporter for the Tulsa World, then later, public relations. She joined Urban Art Lab Studios in February 2019.
