Currently On Exhibit:
Sandrine (Sanya) Colson-Inam presents her artwork from September 2 to 30.
In this exhibit, Sanya invites her viewers to see the invisible out of her work; to make up their own stories and let their mind imagine the end of stories her mixed media or paintings are starting for them. In this series Sanya expresses her personal ideas about emotional expression, resulting in richly textured abstract canvases in various color schemes that incorporate mixed-media elements. The compositions are abstract and emotional, referencing natural forms and movement, filled with bright paint swirls of color, playful paper cut-outs, and three-dimensional objects.
A reception with the artist will be held in the Coletti Reading Room on Saturday, September 13 from 2-4 p.m.
Sandrine Colson-Inam signs her work as Sanya. Born in Provence, France, she is a world traveler and has visited many countries in the Americas, Africa, Asia and Europe.
