Friday for the Arts, June 8, 2018

For our June show, PAAL will feature works of of a returning artist as well as introducing a new talent.

In the Main Gallery 

Sandra Nardone is presenting an eclectic collection of original oil paintings entitled “...a few of my favorite things!”

Of her artistry, Sandra says: “I have tried many forms of creating art, sculpting, fabric, and digital art. But my favorite, is painting.  I prefer oils because of the luminosity of the medium and of course, the forgiveness!

I have painted many things in many styles. I find beauty all around me. This show will comprise many of my works from the past seven years from abstracts to portraits, from landscapes to still life.”

 In addition to the pieces in her current show, Sandra will also hold a book signing.

Ellis Island Immigrants: Faces of America is my first book and is a collection of 24 of my portraits of immigrants and their photos taken on Ellis Island from the late 1800s to the early 1920s.  (This collection was displayed at PAAL last year, thanks to Russell!)  The book will be for sale at $21.95 and I will sign the numbered copy for you.

 

 

Upstairs in the Member's Gallery PAAL is excited to introduce a new artist: DeAndre Tatum.

As she tells it - “I’m a 21-year-old Artist, born and raised in the Colonial Heights/Petersburg area.  I've been very involved with Art since I could first hold a pencil.  I've won many awards off of my work such as The Scholastics Art and Writing award which includes Gold, Silver, and Honorable Mention.  Most of my work is mixed media, using color pencil and markers.  I can also paint and sculpt. The title for my Artwork is called "In My Thoughts".  In my series every Drawing has a story and I would love a chance to tell it.”
