Gallery Underground “Urban Edge” Solo Show by Sandi Parker
 & March Members Show

Gallery Underground - 2100 Crystal Drive
March 1-25, 2016
The Focus Gallery in March features “Urban Edge,” Sandi Parker’s solo show of abstract acrylic paintings depicting urban living—chaotic, intense and sublime. Meant to evoke city walls, the paintings are highly textured, resembling the patina that results from many layers of peeling paint, graffiti and pasted flyers. The paintings are a marriage of abstract and street art. The artist says, “Urban beauty can be found in even the darkest alleys with decaying walls. In cities, everything is art if you take the time to see it. There will be an opening reception on Friday, March 4, 5-8pm.
