The artist will hold a reception free to the general public on Sept. 6, from 5-8 p.m. The galleries at Carnegie Hall are open and free to the public Monday through Friday 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. and on Saturdays 1-4 p.m. Many of the works are available for purchase.

Sandra King is a full time professional artist working in water media and pastel. She resides on a 50-acre farm in Clay County with her husband, Wayne. Inspired by the constantly changing seasonal color, brilliant night skies and dramatic sunsets found in the mountains of central West Virginia, her latest series in watercolor and mixed media collage, “Windows in Time,” expresses the underlying essence of nature. The paintings capture the timeless landscape to the outer reaches of the universe as seen through the artist’s eyes and imagination.

She holds a Masters Degree in Fine Art from Marshall University with 53 additional postgraduate hours from West Virginia University and The West Virginia Center of Graduate Studies. King has worked with many nationally known artists in workshops taken across the country.

King is a retired art teacher from Clay County High School and continues to teach private classes in her studio. She is a member of the Maryland Pastel Society, the West Virginia Arts and Crafts Guild, the Randolph County Community Arts Center, and current president of the Allied Artists of West Virginia.

Her work is included in many corporate collections and in the collections of the Erma Byrd Gallery of Women Artists at the University of Charleston, Marshall University, and WVU Tech. Her paintings have been featured in West Virginia Quarterly Magazine, Washington Post, Montgomery County Sentinel, Charleston Gazette, Charleston Daily Mail, Register Herald, Braxton County Citizens News, and Clay Free Press.
