An Iris Stand Tall



An art installation of 40 pieces of original art - with an accompanying narrative - by local artist Annette Sabater, who's child began medical treatment to transition from an adolescent boy into a young woman at age sixteen. This unique exhibit traces the experience of a parent as she enters the new and mysterious journey, at times filled with doubt and grief. The collection is rendered in a combination of graphite and oil pastel, by a parent exploring the deeper understanding of her child.

The Cerimon House At The Hearth Conversation Series is proud to present this 9 day return of the immensely popular art exhibit. Stay tuned for news of a themed discussion. 

Annette Sabater has always had the soul of an artist. Originally from the Seattle area, she received a Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy and Minor in Art from University of Puget Sound. Following graduation in 1984, she lived in Minneapolis working as a physical therapist for three years before returning to the Northwest in 1987. There she continued her career as a pediatric physical therapist. She traveled throughout Europe and served as a volunteer for two weeks in Romanian orphanages. Her artist’s tools were never far away as she processed these various experiences. She met her husband and became a step mother for his two sons, later giving birth to a son who is now her daughter. These life experiences have inspired her to apply her creative skills in writing and art to share with others. She believes strongly that the arts can help educate the public and bring forth truth in a creative format. Artists can use their skills to bring together various groups who share complementary missions, thus showing community accord for the public to experience. Art is an opening to the soul; a space where connections are made to bring people together. She resides in Portland, Oregon with her husband.
