First Saturday Art Walk and Artist Reception March 4, 6-8pm
For our spring exhibition, Themes+Projects gallery presents “Passages” by Tom Sandonato. Sandonato’s work explores the space between painting and sculpture. His mixed media pieces are painted on a variety of materials from simple cardboard, Masonite, plexi-glass, to hot rolled steel. Consistent in his work, is the desire to see beyond the two dimensionality of the painted surface to the nuances of what lies within. His methods include scratching and sanding through various layers of pigment, all within the confines of the grid. Pieces in the exhibition range in scale from 36”X 24” to 96” X 96.”
