Meet Sarah

My name is Sarah Scanlon and I am a 3rd generation Art Gallery Owner: my Grandparents were art collectors and owners of “The Collectors Corner” in Door County and grandmother Helen Powell Hooper an artist from Manitowoc, WI. My mother, Mary Hirst was an accomplished potter and owned the Pots Place in Bowling Green KY, and last but not least my sister is Helen Hooper-Hirst whose pottery I carry in the gallery. I had a 30 year career and retired in the Oil and Gas Industry, geologist in the oil field, (Core Laboratories: Wyoming, Montana and Colorado Overthrust belt), research and development (Exxon: LaBarge and Big Piney, WY), laboratory testing and refinery management (Flint Hills Resources: Rosemount, MN).

I went to High School in New Delhi India, and developed a desire to travel due to that unique and wonderful experience. My late husband worked for Northwest and Delta Airlines, so we traveled and scuba dived all over the world with Asia as our focal point. Now traveling is my passion, collecting unique art and artifacts for the galley. I recently returned from Bali and Australia, last year France, Iceland and Bhutan (where I hiked to the Tigers Nest Monastery) woohoo, quite the accomplishment. My daughter and her husband are educators at the American school in Shanghai so after the Covid dilemma I will be finding some items from China! (Maybe not so soon).

Come in and enjoy the atmosphere and music inside Galeria Saro, a calm oasis within the hustle bustle of Main Street in the beautiful river town of Stillwater, Minnesota.
