Brittany Sanders is a painter and book artist. In 2004, at age twenty-five, Sanders was the youngest artist represented in the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s exhibition Highlights from the Permanent Collection: 1450 to the Present, Tiepolo to Thiebaud. Her artwork is in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Getty Museum, Yale University and the New York Public Library, the Peter and Helen Bing Family, Agnes Gund and the Peter Norton Family. Sanders has received private commissions from the George Gund family, the Bonel Collection, and the artist and architect Maya Lin.
Brittany Sanders’ artwork focuses on themes of the temporal moment and the perception of truth. Sanders is currently executing a series of paintings on the theme of “last lands/what can be seen beyond the burden of knowing.”
Brittany Sanders graduated with honors from Brown University, with a double major in Comparative Literature and History of Art and Architecture.
In 2000 Sanders founded the Bonnie and Morgan Press with a mission to continue the tradition and expand the boundaries of limited edition art books. The Press has produced over fifteen titles ranging from Last Night We Were Awoke, which depicts how the night sky appeared to the Lewis and Clark expedition, to the anthology book I WAS THERE, which brings together emerging and established artists and writers commenting on seminal experience.
Sanders lives in Ojai, California.
