Opening Reception FriSept 7 . Bio below :
Raised in New England, Diane Sandall heeded the siren song of the Northwest, making her way out to Oregon. After a time, she looked to her heritage, and a six-month stay in Sweden began a compelling relationship with her second home, infusing her work with the wind and the savor of that beautiful land.
Sense of place anchors her art; the rain and the cool colors of the Pacific Northwest and the depth of history and myth in Scandinavia feed the storyteller in her. While she has practiced many tactile arts – knitting, carving, ceramics, blacksmithing among them – she returns to drawing as a way to connect people and the natural world to timeless narratives.
Her work is in many private collections and can be seen annually at the Oregon Country Fair. Her illustrations are presented in the volume of children’s prayers Small Graces. She likes Irish whiskey and a long gab and she’s happy to talk about the printmaking process if you might be interested.
