Sandra Reed, Array (solo exhibition) - Artist’s talk: Monday, October 24 @ 5pm
Array consists of interrelated subsets of work created during the past five years connected by the idea of place. All are driven by an experimental approach to written language, form, and color. Imagery moves from rendered drawings of stones to complex abstracted paintings. Color shifts from the monochromatic to muted varieties to the fully saturated. Experiments with different pigments and tools such as stencils produce textures creating a world from complex processes.
Sandra Reed earned a Master of Fine Arts in painting from George Washington University, Washington, D.C., and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting and drawing from Drake University, Des Moines, Iowa. Her work has been exhibited widely across the United States and abroad (Ireland, England, France. and Liberia). These include numerous solo shows as well as juried and invitational group exhibitions in academic, commercial, and civic galleries as well as museums. Her paintings and drawings were included in two previous invitational exhibitions in the Moon Gallery. Her solo exhibition Selvage was shown this spring at Library Gallery on Marshall University’s South Charleston campus.
