BIOGRAPHY
As a founding member of the Mutants, Sally Webster was a part of the influential art-punk scene in San Francisco in the late ’70s and early ’80s. She studied sculpture and performance art at the San Francisco Art Institute and has been making visual art ever since.

One constant in Webster’s work is the conversation between her own quirky brand of humor and the painterly arts.

In recent years, Webster has extended her practice to include multiple-media work. In May 2009, she helped to organize “Light Show,” a novel music and visual exhibition/performance combining multi-image photography, film, video, and old-school psychedelia using the iconic “liquid light” from the ’60s. For the last two years, she has focused on a new series of paintings.
