so. much. art.
Loving seeing so much good, bad, amazing, beautiful and not good looking at all. It’s even more entertaining to be able to appreciate even if you do not like, understand or think the work is “art”. One is reminded of the threads of what is visually and/or intellectually exciting presently and historically. The people watching is rich. Miami’s weather and vegetation never fail to elate.

Just received this beautiful photograph by Adam Kuehl (courtesy of SCAD) of the Sandoz-Hebermehl collaborative mural at Haymans Hall.
The building’s look is the work of SCAD VP and lead (interior, in this case) designer Glenn E. Wallace. Wallace continues to gain appreciation in the artist community as he makes some deft leaps of faith in curating especially when it comes to public and 3D works.
Go check out Haymans Hall because this is certainly not the only eye candy there. Also appearing: 1. a 15,000 pencil collaborative installation by Michael Porten and Elizabeth Winnel 2. a collaborative fibers “wall” of upcycled, repurposed jeans and denims 3. and much, much more.

This work represents what one might have seen facing east prior to Holland Drive closing to through traffic. While I miss the old view, I’m equally interested in the new vistas afforded by this new road that links Abercorn Street and White Bluff.

This year we are reversing the advent and each night we will create a drawing of a gift to appear behind the shutters instead of opening one that is already in place.
Sign of the times! Number one? The iPhone!

Who can know what additional mysteries will appear behind doors 2-24?
It’s so romantic in a swamp. Who knows why? Even more so if it’s a cypress swamp and the water’s down so you can walk through it. Then, if you run into a lone tupelo in the midst of said swamp, what more, in terms of special, could you ask for?
Horace disagrees, “Who says swamps are romantic?” Then he gets to speaking in Latin describing swamp tupelo vs. black gum and other identifying attributes of swamps. Also, the Creek word for swamp is opilwa. And suddenly, you see why, in fact, swamps can be romantic.

I’ve just added all the drawings and paintings created for The Southern Coterie Summits in Jekyll Island, Athens and Nashville on to my online boutique. You can find images by searching the collection or by searching on the name of the person you wish to view.
If you have questions about the work, please feel free to email me at katherin (at) katherinesandoz (dot) com. Some will wonder about the pricing from the gitgo. I base my pricing on difficultly of the work, likeness achieved and degree of media and technique employed. If you wish to make a purchase, I am offering a 20% discount through 12/15/13; the coupon is TSCLOVE at checkout (for this collection only). I am also open to indulging dickerers and hagglers; always entertaining.
On a more serious note, I send best wishes to all the summit attendees, presenters and staff this Thanksgiving week. While preparing these works for the boutique, I enjoyed thinking about all you do, your words of wisdom, your humor and the distinct, inspiring and beautiful qualities I have witnessed in so many of you.
Lastly, I am most grateful for a creative venue in which I get to do what I love best; stare folks down while learning and recording in pictures on paper!

I drive Habersham Street when heading downtown. Imagine my surprise this Friday as I traveled north and suddenly…YARN BOMB. The Green Truck had been decorated in no fewer than four locations on the site. I didn’t have time to check carefully, but it looked like there were about 150 or so individual pieces included within the works. Obviously a well coordinated community-centered project, I wonder how many knitters and crocheters contributed.
It’s exciting that our city is becoming one where three large public art endeavors have been realized in one week!

I guess I’m on record as concerned with/interested in what is universally universal.
Thank you to all the management and crew of apartmentsavannah.com at Edgewater Trace, to the extraordinary team of documentarists (Luke McMahon, Keith Morgan & Juwan Platt), to my friends, collaborators, my alma mater, the Savannah press corps, and especially to my painting assistants past and present; could not have done this spicy work without you!
