About the Artists:
Kay Sandler practiced law for 20 years before discovering the art world in a beginner’s watercolor class. Since then, she attended the Maryland Institute, College of Art (MICA), and has taken local art classes and national workshops regularly. Kay paints in watercolors, pastels and acrylics. Her work has been juried in over 50 international and national exhibitions since 2005. Kay has won over 25 awards, including Best of Show in the annual Mid-Atlantic Exhibition sponsored by the Baltimore Watercolor Society. Her watercolors and pastels have been published in national art magazines.
Kay is a signature member of numerous art societies including the Baltimore Watercolor Society, the Texas Watercolor Society, Watercolor West, the Philadelphia Water Color Society and the Maryland Pastel Society. Kay has studios in Columbia, Maryland and in Plantation, Florida.
Most of Kay’s work is representational with a strong emphasis on color and design. Using vibrant, saturated color and a close-up view, Kay portrays lush botanicals with high drama.
Kay lives in Columbia, MD with her husband. Kay’s law office is located on Main Street, in historic Ellicott City, Maryland.
Allison Pasarew is a talented sculptor who creates her art using unnoticed parts of jewelry, blown apart, and rearranged. Her artwork forms organically – as the gears, springs, and metal plates dictate the movement and mood of the sculpture. These precision parts, usually taken for granted or not even thought about until they stop working, are reincarnated and celebrated to create the delicacy of the new life she preserves behind glass.
Allison graduated from MICA in 2002 with a concentration in sculpture. For five years, she lived and worked in the Detroit, Michigan area, developing abstract sculptures that incorporate obsolete mechanical parts. These sculptures have been called “time lines”, “pop-surrealism” and an “ode to the obsolete.”
Since her return to Baltimore, she has continued working on the sculptures, as well as mixed media drawings and digital photography that range from representational to abstract and focus on the beauty of the mechanical objects. Each media is a body of work in their own right, yet all are a part of her ongoing journey to explore the different moods of the subject matter.
Allison has shown nationally in numerous cities and galleries including: Los Angeles, California's Gallery Noir; New Orleans, Louisiana's Insley Art Gallery; Omaha, Nebraska's Jewish Community Center; Michigan, Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center and Neal Davis Gallery; Alexandria Virginia, The Bodzin Art Gallery; and Towson, Maryland, Towson Artist Collective.
Allison currently lives in Baltimore City with her husband.
In closing: I Look forward to welcoming you to my Gallery for this wonderful show! Abundant Kindness, Robin Holliday
