Learn a little bit more about me. Read the recent interview I did with Visual Collaborative. https://www.visualcollaborative.com/theda_sandiford/
Wide Open 11 is a national juried show, hosted by BWAC and juried by Paulina Pobocha, Associate Curator, Department of Painting and Sculpture, Museum of Modern Art!
Now in its eleventh year and as its name implies, the broad theme of this exhibition looks to explore the idea of “wide open” in all the hidden niches of our collective psyche; It encompasses all the possibilities of knowledge, freedom and love: wide open space; arms wide open; eyes wide open. Yet, as with all things, there is the inevitable opposite: wide open to attack, corruption and failure.
Despite the global pandemic, art shows are still going on. They have moved into virtual galleries, online catalogs, Instagram Live and ZOOM. The ripple effects of digital media merging with the physical art world will be felt for years. I am here for it all.

Learn to wrap and hitch knot yarn and ribbon onto rope. I will demonstrate how I use a crochet hook and knot by hand. The process is a vibe; meditative and relaxing.
Pop in, say hello and have a glass of wine with me while previewing several 3D soft fiber sculpture works in progress.
I workshopped I Am My Hair for more than 200 people in my hotel room during 14C Art Fair, February 2020. And was fortunate enough to share other works in the Juried Show and 14C Hospitality Suite…
Looked like this…
before it became… THIS
I was supposed to host my I Am My Hair workshop at Chashama 25th Anniversary Gala in June but due to co-vid this year’s event has been cancelled.
Instead, revisit the last workshop I hosted in my Studio in February 2020.
I look forward to the day I can open my space to visitors … I miss you all.
Beauty is given –
and a given. It’s in the
streets and in the sky.
