“ My first art teacher told me that in order to effectively emulate something, you have to experience it. ”

SANDRA SELL

“ I do a little dance with the tools. Sometimes wood presents surprises, and that’s part of the process. That’s the nature of art: thousands and thousands of decisions as you go. ”

SANDRA SELL

“ Inspiration in full functioning order is when you grab onto one thread of curiosity and allow it to unravel many other thoughts. ”

ABOUT

Art Gap

Facilitated by Sandra Sell, Art GAP brings together visual artists from various backgrounds, different life circumstances, and various ways of working to nurture ongoing competitive-level art production for themselves and each other. Discussions center around artistic process, individual ways of working, business, marketing, and setting goals.

“We are an example of a mutually supportive structure for continued exploration and artistic growth.”
