Spalding Nix Fine Art is pleased to present Flora and Fauna, with new works by Georgia-based contemporary artists Katherine Sandoz and Heather Lancaster. The exhibition will open on May 12, 2016, and run through July 30, 2016. Sandoz's works represent FLORA with colorful and botanical-inspired abstract paintings, and Lancaster signifies FAUNA with elegant and graceful ostrich portraits.

About Katherine Sandoz - FLORA
With the marshes, waterways and people of the low-country offering perennial inspiration, Katherine Sandoz examines the everyday and offers work that celebrates what is precious and unique. With this show, Sandoz returns to the subject of flowers, reexamining botanicals through abstraction firmly situating the work in the realm of minimalism. "These paintings are as much about studying and representing botanicals as they are about paint itself, weather patterns, and the natural landscape," reflects Sandoz. She lives in Savannah, and her paintings and fiber works have been exhibited internationally.
