On Saturday, September 24 at 6 p.m., prior to M&D Playhouse’s performance of “The Dixie Swim Club,” an artist reception will be held for local artist Sandi Poor.
Poor, a member of the Mount Washington Valley Arts Association and artist in residence at the Ellis River Art Gallery in Jackson, has been a student of watercolors for the past seven years, and became a “Juried Artist” with the MWV Arts Association in 2013. She has exhibited at The Met, Darby Field Inn, the Bernerhof Inn, and Conway Library. Self-taught, Poor has attended many local and nationally acclaimed workshops, and participates in Friday Painters Group.
Poor’s passion for drawing and painting began at an early age, with the arts being an important part of her life. She finds watercolor to be the best medium for expressing her love for all things artistic, and is fascinated by the transparency and blending of colors that allows her spontaneity and control. Many of her projects begin with sketching to determine values, composition and colors. Poor enjoys painting a myriad of subjects including landscapes, flowers, figures, and most recently, musical themes. Semi-retired as a healthcare consultant, Poor has pursued her life-long dream of becoming an artist, and works to continue her growth, knowledge and technical abilities in watercolor with ongoing workshops and fellowship with other artists.
There is no cost to attend the reception, which will offer refreshments and a cash bar. However, tickets for “The Dixie Swim Club” should be booked ahead to ensure a seat. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door.
