‘Making A Mark’ an exhibition of work by Sandy Densem…

We are delighted to currently be showing  an exhibition of oil paintings and drawings by Sandy Densem. 

Sandy was born in Zimbabwe and studied Fine Art in Cape Town in the 1970’s majoring in oil painting – she has been painting and exhibiting since then.  Sandy then taught art and textiles for many years in Zimbabwe and also worked with interior designers and architects to produce soft furnishings, paintings and wall murals for a group of safari lodges.  These years have given Sandy a deeper understanding of the surface qualities of artwork being translated into the textural layering process so evident in  her drawing and painting.  Sandy currently lives in Hawke’s Bay with her husband Ray.

In the meantime have a look at her works on show until the end of April – and if you would like to purchase any, be quick as eleven sold on the opening night and another four since then!  We look forward to seeing you at the Gallery or feel free to contact us on email.

Thanks for reading…. enjoy Sandy’s work below.
