Several years ago in a suburb of Los Angeles Sabrina and I started a conversation. We began at the high school where we were both students and became friends in fourth period, advanced art 2.
It had been over a decade since I had last caught up with Sabrina. Years she had spent traveling, publishing books and teaching. Years I had spent mostly in schools studying art and teaching. I had moved back to California to escape the cold of my third February in Chicago. Sabrina was visiting family... READ MORE

This is what purchasing 10 pork tenderloins looks like.
FYI Pork Tenderloin (two per pig)
A very juicy, tender cut, the tenderloin is the king of versatility. Its delicate flavor makes it the perfect companion for a spicy rub, marinade or sauce. Tenderloin is an easy option for entertaining, or a quick family meal. (smithfield.com)

Summary: Sabrina and Trent talk to art curator and writer Carrie Scott.
In concert with curating exhibitions and building both private and public art collections, Carrie Scott & Partners works closely with a number of artists and photographers - including Nick Knight, David Sims, Lord Snowdon, Walter & Zoniel, Marina Shacola, Hugo Rittson Thomas and Federico Pestilli - to establish strong and sustained markets on their behalf. CS&P participates in many aspects of this process, from selecting pieces in their archive, assisting and overseeing artwork production, and putting together a considered sales strategy that sees placement of the work in museum and exhibition settings.
Founder and Managing Partner of Carrie Scott & Partners, Carrie Scott has been a curator and arts writer since 2004. She has developed Modern and Contemporary collections in Europe and the United States, working with numerous businesses, executives and collectors to help them establish, manage, and maintain both corporate and personal art collections.
Since early 2010, Scott has also worked side-by-side with visionary fashion photographer Nick Knight to create the SHOWstudio Shop where she curated exhibitions at the gallery that featured high profile contemporary artists like Douglas Gordon, Raymond Pettibon, Keith Tyson, Terrence Ko, and Anj Smith, alongside the work of dynamic young artists like Tim A. Shaw, Courtney Andrews, Charlotte Kingsnorth, and Walter Hugo. The SHOWstudio’s gallery is now globally recognized as a pioneering, ground-breaking platform that nurtures and encourages creativity by combining the different art forms together in one space.
Before starting Carrie Scott & Partners in 2009, Scott was Director of Nicole Klagsburn Gallery, New York, where she worked closely with artists such as Beth Campbell, Matthew Day Jackson, Rashid Johnson, Mika Rottenberg, Adam McEwen, and Storm Tharp. Prior to that, she was noted curator of the Hedreen Gallery at Seattle University's Lee Center, and Director of the James Harris Gallery in Seattle, Washington.
In 2017, Scott will appear as a presenter on The Art Show, an entirely new art series that richly captures the artists of our lifetime that have inspired collectors and art lovers alike.
The following is a piece written by Carrie about Sabrina's work:
Sabrina Ward Harrison published her first book, Spilling Open: The Art of Becoming Yourself, at the age of 23. Written between the ages of eighteen and twenty-one, Spilling Open was an intimate and moving picture of the contradictions young women face as they are asked to grow into societal norms of femininity. Her tender honesty and singular aesthetic energy turned Harrison into the voice of a generation.
Though she went on to publish four more books, to call Harrison an author isn’t accurate. Books were certainly her unique way to distribute the work, but her practice has always begun in her compositions. Harrison’s canvases – whether the pages of a book or a wood paneled painting – appear effortless; flowing bold, singular marks pivot and plot across colored fields of energy. These saturated areas of color, hand written words and beautifully worked surfaces, create a combination of iconography that is immediately recognizable and Harrison’s own.
Marked by repetition, intuition, and cultural references – as well as an endurance of symbolism and diaristic expression – means there is an undeniable continuity in the vocabulary of Harrison’s work. But it is the bravery in laying herself bare that brings an edge to the work that is also at once palpable and undeniably powerful. Central to Harrison’s practice is her exploration of the most intimate of experiences in universal form. Harrison’s oeuvre explores questions about love, faith, and identity, embracing the pain and pleasure of living. Her conscious mark-making results in reasoned surfaces that are balanced between purposeful text and powerful imagery.
Harrison is the creator of 5 groundbreaking published books; the first one, Spilling Open, was published when she was 23. She has gone onto publish, Brave on the Rocks, Messy Thrilling Life, The True and The Questions and The Story is Happening. Sabrina was born in Montreal Canada and moved to California with her family at 9. She went onto study photography and graphic design at California College of the Arts in San Francisco.
She has taught creativity worldwide for 2 decades with a belief she holds strong to, that, "we must create what we most need to find" After fantastic years in Northern California and New York City, She is currently exploring the midwest in the wonderful city of Madison Wisconsin, which reminds her of her childhood in Canada.

It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.
It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life's betrayals or have become shrivelled and closed from fear of further pain.
I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it, or fade it, or fix it.
I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own; if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, be realistic, remember the limitations of being human.
It doesn't interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself. If you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul. If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.
I want to know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day. And if you can source your own life from its presence.
I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand at the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, 'Yes.'
It doesn't interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done to feed the children.
It doesn't interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back.
It doesn't interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.
I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.
