Local artist Martha Andrea will discuss her beautiful mixed media work and influences. This program is brought to you in conjunction with the 2nd Annual Artist Invitational Show, which opens Friday, August 2nd at 4th and Walnut and whose proceeds benefit the Library.
Prior to moving to Sun Valley in 2005, mixed-media artist Martha Andrea was a Professor of Fine Arts at Colby-Sawyer College in New London, New Hampshire. Originally from Michigan, Ms. Andrea received her BFA from Colorado State University and her MFA from West Virginia University. Her studies took her to Europe, with a focus on Italy, where she has also returned on a number of occasions to teach.
Ms. Andrea has exhibited and been a visiting artist/lectururer in this country and abroad, and her artwork can be found in both private and public collections. Sabbaticals in Greece, Egypt, and Italy supported ongoing research which influence her mixed-media work. She is the recipient of a grant from the NH State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the arts.
