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

Sandy Young was awarded “Best of Show” for her art piece “Open Book” at the national juried show “ABZ Etcetera” at Sebastopol Center for the Arts.
In a well attended opening reception Thursday, September 12, jurors Suzanne Gray and Donna Seager of Seager Gray Gallery in Mill Valley, CA presented awards for the top art pieces in the national show of art that incorporates words, letters or symbols. Sandy Young walked away with the top honor of “Best of Show” for her mixed-media piece “Open Book”.
The jurors, said they had a hard time choosing which of Sandy Young’s two art pieces should receive the award as they were equally impressed with both. Ultimately they chose “Open Book”, stating “ This piece got our attention right away. The materials, text and imagery are beautifully integrated and we loved the multiple media used… with a mastery of her materials.”
Sandy Young’s art “Open Book” and her second piece “Pages of Mystery” layer glass that she has formed in a kiln with imagery, paint, text and wire on wood panel to create a dimensional image that is best experienced in person. Both pieces will be on display at Sebastopol Center for the Arts through October 19th, along with 53 other pieces of art from across the nation that were juried into the show “ABZ Etcetera”.
“I am honored and thrilled to receive this award from such highly respected jurors“, states Young. “The show is absolutely beautiful.”
ABZ Etcetera” runs through October 19, 2013 at Sebastopol Center for the Arts, 282 High St. in Sebastopol. Gallery hours are Tues. – Fri., 10 am – 4 pm and Sat., 1-4 pm.
