“Hidden” at Marin Museum of Contemporary Art

"Hidden" by Sandy Young. Mixed Media 24" x 18" x 3", © 2016

Sandy Young to exhibit in the juried group show “Hidden” at Marin MOCA from Jan. 14, 2017 through Feb. 19, 2017


UPDATE: Sandy Young Awarded 3rd Place at the show “Hidden”, Marin Museum of Contemporary Art

Hidden is a juried group exhibition featuring works that include the disguised, secret or concealed. Artworks in this show may include a secret code, double meaning, hidden imagery, optical illusion or other interpretation of the theme “hidden”.

Sandy Young’s artwork, aptly titled “Hidden”, is about hidden aspects of self. Her mixed media piece features the image of a girl with a kiln-glass overlay, dimensional wire forms and translucent encaustic paint. Young sees these elements as representing traces of internal experience that serve to both hide and reveal aspects of self.

“Hidden” runs January 14 through February 19, 2017 at the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art in Novato, CA. There will be a reception for the artists on Saturday, January 14 from 5:00-7:00pm.

The show is juried by Donna Seager and Suzanne Gray of the Seager Gray Gallery. Seager Gray Gallery specializes in contemporary fine art with a focus on works that combine content with mastery of materials. Partners Donna Seager and Suzanne Gray have established a premier gallery in Mill Valley that takes the stage in international fairs, garners critical review, and is recognized beyond the San Francisco Bay Area. Donna Seager is also an advisory board member of Marin MOCA.

And the Show Goes on…

Dress Rehearsal by Sandy Young

SYX Gallery | Sandy Young Exhibits…

“And the Show Goes on…” an exhibition of show-themed art by Sandy Young.

Juxtaposing old with new, Young combines early dance, circus and show posters with imagery of contemporary dancers and scenes, expressing continuity through time, or an interpretation of the theme “and the show goes on”.

Show posters from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s serve as inspiration for many of Young’s mixed-media dimensional art pieces.  Other pieces weave dancers in and out of the various planes, or in other ways feature show and performer subject matter, and yet all pieces exhibit Young’s signature layering of glass and imagery.  Sandy Young combines formed glass with various materials, including wire, image transfer and paint on wood panel, often creating a three-dimensional effect.

And the Show Goes on… runs from January 16 through February 14, 2016. Reception: Sunday, January 17 from 4:00-6:00 pm.

SYX Gallery is the new exhibition space featuring Sandy Young’s art in downtown Sonoma. Set in an historical 1910 building one block from the Sonoma Plaza, this new gallery offers collectors and visitors an opportunity to view Sandy Young’s art on a regular basis. For Young, it is an opportunity to develop site-specific art for future shows, as well.

Sandy Young: New Work at Celebration of Fine Art


Sandy Young brings new work to the 25th Anniversary show “Celebration of Fine Art” in Scottsdale, AZ. Sandy’s nature-inspired mixed media pieces such as “Winds of Change” and “Spring Inside” make reference to more than the physical. As is typical of her work, Sandy’s new pieces speak to the psychological or inner experience. “Within the Pages” and “From B&W to Color” appear to be more personal as they each feature the image of a young girl.

It is the layering, use of glass, transparency, opacity and dimension that create intrigue and draw one into the art pieces, themselves. “Dawn-Lit Path” and “Night and Day” make particular use of dimension. In the piece “Dawn-Lit Path”, the stairs appear three-dimensional, receding from the viewer, and are accentuated by the actual depth behind the doorway at the top of these steps. “Night and Day” plays with illusion and ambiguity as the window appears to float in a room made up of outside and inside elements, yet offers a new view through its own panes of glass.

Also on display and new this year is art glass lighting by Sandy Young. “The art glass lighting is a fun way for me to play with light and color, and shows a lighter (no pun intended) side of me”, states Young. Geared toward the interior design market, Sandy’s sconce lighting and pendant lamps are all one-of-a-kind, with hand-made glass with UL-listed fixtures.

Celebration of Fine Art runs 7 days a week and offers an opportunity to meet and interact with the almost 100 artists on site. Open through March 29, 2015, Celebration of Fine Art is located at N. Hayden and Loop 101 in Scottsdale, AZ. Hrs: 10am – 6pm. www.celebrateart.com
