Archives for Sarah McGavran, Ph.D.

Sarah McGavran’s art criticism is grounded in her own training as a painter and her experience teaching college-level art history. After earning a B.A. in Art History at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, she fell in love with German Expressionism while on a Fulbright year in Germany. Her graduate work at Washington University in St. Louis, where she earned both her M.A. and Ph.D., focused on gender and politics in modern European art. During that time, she spent another three years in Germany and Switzerland researching the artist Paul Klee. Published internationally, Sarah has also delivered conference papers in Europe and North Africa as well as the U.S. She moved to Arlington in 2017, and now works as an editor and translator.
