“Partly Cloudy” Art Show by Sandy Roob
November 3, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us at the store for the opening reception of our next art show!
We’re so excited to host work by Sandy Roob for the entire month of November!
As a farmer’s daughter from northern Indiana, Sandy grew up surrounded by rural landscapes. Bucolic fields filled with crops, wooded countryside and creeks fascinated her. She learned to observe and admire the sky and different types of clouds.
Sandy began her artistic journey in a high school art class by capturing those images on camera or recreating them with paint on canvas. She later earned a minor in Studio Arts at DePauw University in Greencastle, IN. After college, she worked as a news reporter for NBC affiliate, WNDU-TV in South Bend and later moved to Indianapolis and handled media relations for numerous schools at IUPUI, including the Herron School of Art.
Sandy returned to her passion of art after leaving her fulltime job to become a fulltime mom. For more than a decade she has studied oil painting at the Indianapolis Art Center and has taken workshops with various local artists. Sandy also taught painting classes at the IAC for a few years.
Sandy now gathers art inspiration on walks, bike rides, and trips to the mountains and beaches. She tries to translate nature’s beauty onto canvas with a palette of rich earth tones, zesty shades of blue, green, and red, and lively brush strokes.
When she is not painting, Sandy enjoys spending time with her husband and our college-aged children, a son at Purdue and a daughter at Vanderbilt.
Sandy’s work has been exhibited at the Indianapolis Art Center, Broad Ripple Art Fair, The Stutz, Zionsville’s Brick Street Art Walk, and Millersville Café Market. For more information or commissioned work contact Sandy at: email@example.com or check out her art at sandyroob.com.
