Coming up Next:
Desultoria: The Miscellany of A.M. Sartor
A Special 3-day exhibit, Friday, August 7th through end of day Sunday, August 9th
Artist reception Sat, August 8th 5-8pm
“Desultoria” is an attempt to create a series of images that emerge from the subconscious through automatic drawing, resulting in work that has no specific objective. Because of the malleability and unpredictable nature of the media used, the image is started as an abstraction and then refined into a narrative. Also on view will be a collection of commercial illustration and selected sketchbook pages. The intent of showing these three bodies of work together is to allow the viewer to see how self expression and free form creativity can be used to enrich more formalized imagery.
A.M.Sartor is a freelance illustrator that resides in Seattle, WA. She graduated a very long time ago from Cornish College of the Arts, and since then has worked in video game development, children’s books, and a myriad of other commercial illustration projects. Her work is a mix between traditional and digital media.
