Sarah Albritton

Sarah Albritton

Ruston

Well-known for her southern cooking at Sarah's Kitchen in Ruston, Sarah Albritton is also a fine storyteller. Sarah has both told stories and demonstrated traditional cooking at the Louisiana Folklife Festival for many years. Personal narratives are especially important to Sarah in that she is now painting some of her of memories that she frequently tells as narratives. "Memory and Vision: The Arts of Sarah Albritton," an exhibition of her memory and visionary paintings which present an African American view of growing up in rural north Louisiana and her religious and philosophical perspectives will tour Louisiana in Fall 1998 and Spring 1999. Of particular note is the inclusion of Sarah's narratives about each painting. The companion catalog features the paintings with their narratives, Albritton's Christmas yard art, and interpretive essays by Susan Roach and Peter Jones. She is also a lay preacher and often uses storytelling in her church presentations -- both Biblical stories and personal narratives.
