We’re pleased to welcome local artist Sandi Shapiro to our gallery on the evening of Friday, March 6, 2015 from 6 to 8 PM. Her show, Hard Edges, features colorful nonobjective paintings and wire sculpture.
Of her work, Sandi says, “Marks on canvas are very important to me. When I start painting, I usually never know what the final work will ultimately look like. I consider myself an abstract expressionist. But from time to time I do paint portraits or representational work. This seems to center me and allows me to go back to my real love of painting abstractly… clearly, freely and instinctively. It is important to me to do work that is meaningful to me and represents my own energy and feelings. Painting is a “happening” for me. It is the energy between the canvas and myself. This energy starts developing into an idea and there I go. n idea will start to form from the color, brush strokes, and different marks on the canvas. The excitement for the idea will usually develop into a large body of work. I am working with different shapes that move, shove, get along with each other or play with each other. They exist in space.”
Stop by our studio to see Hard Edges for yourself.
Opening reception: Friday, March 6, 2015. 6-8 PM.
