Sandra Sell Spotlighted at Next Thea's Art Department

Curiosity Revealed.

That’s the title of Sandra Sell’s new exhibit to be the backbone of the next installment of Thea Foundation’s The Art Department, and her work is a curious sight, indeed.

At the monthly young professionals series on Friday, Aug. 5, Sell (a New Hampshire native and UALR graduate) will showcase mixed media pieces — a special blending of 2D and 3D elements she calls “Dimensional Paintings” — that are many years in the making. 

“Inspiration in full functioning order is when you grab onto one thread of curiosity and allow it to unravel many other thoughts,” Sell says. “This body of work’s inspiration comes from memories and personal emotions of family and youthful years. This particular effort has been created over an eight year time span.”

However old the memories, Sell intends to burn a portion of the works after the exhibition, even though this will be the only time they’ll ever be on display. That means you should definitely make plans to be there.

The reception kicks off at 6 p.m. and is $10 at the door. That includes food, an open beer and wine bar, live music by Bonnie Montgomery (always a favorite) and the chance to win an original work by Sell.

The Thea Foundation gallery’s hours are 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. and 1 - 5 p.m. on Monday - Friday, and is located at 401 Main St. in North Little Rock. For more information, call (501)-379-9512 or visit the Facebook event page.
