Now Be Here: Sandy Abrams #76

Feeling inspired after attending the historic event Now Be Here at Hauser Wirth & Schimmel. My goal is to feature every artist that attended, one artist a day. Considering the number of artists that showed up, this will take me two years to complete. I am looking forward to getting to know the work of each and every artist!

From REAP:

Sandy Abrams, a mixed media artist who uses felt, clay, wood, various fibers and digital images, was born and raised in New England. After receiving her undergraduate degree, she moved to Los Angeles. Her Masters of Fine Arts with a concentration in ceramics was awarded from California State University at Long Beach. Her career of teaching ceramics included a local university, junior colleges and private high schools. In addition she has been an artist-in-residence at Art Farm, Marquette, Nebraska and Aras Eanna Cultural Center on the Aran Islands in Ireland and studied with renowned Irish basket makers Joe Hogan and Alison Fitzgerald.

She presently maintains a studio in Long Beach where she lives. She often makes non-functional objects that echo a connection to nature or to the “ordinary” or mundane routines in life. Interested in process she finds repetitious movements rewarding, revealing and relaxing.
