April Guest Artist: Andre Satie

Andre Satie – Tiny Pictures and More

April showers bring local painter and former Member Artist Andre Satie to the Art Presence Gallery with a retrospective of her career. She loves creating “Teeny Tiny Paintings” and also works at larger sizes, presenting a unique and playful style that captures landscapes and scenes from daily life with pastels and acrylics.

This Talent artist grew up in her dad’s sign shop in the days of hand-lettered signage, and to this day, there are few aromas that she loves more than the smell of ‘turps’.  Her first competition gained a ‘First’ in oil, and ‘Best of show’.  A few months later, a tiny 2″ silver sculpture mounted on a block of wood took ‘2nd’ in sculpture at the Monterey Jazz Festival.  Feeling validated, Andre took the plunge onto the road marked “Artist” and never looked back. Today, after 60-some years of plying the brush, her happy place is still the studio.  Her work can be found in collections around the globe, personal and corporate, in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Germany, Norway, Costa Rica, and Puerto Rico.

You can preview some of Andre’s work at her website: www.andresatie.com.

We invite you to see Andre’s artwork at the opening reception on Saturday, April 6th from 1 – 4 PM.
