Upcoming Show

Amy here. Just wanted to post about a show I have opening up this Friday, September 4th at Lark and Key Gallery in Charlotte, NC. It will take place during the gallery crawl from 6:00-9:00 and will run throughout the month of September. I'll have lots of new work there and will post pictures from the gallery once it's all set up. Looking forward to seeing you there!


Lark & Key presents new works from Angie Renfro & Amy Sanders

Sept 2nd - 27th, opening reception Friday Sept 4th from 6-9pm

Angie Renfro’s paintings capture the simple beauty of everyday objects and landscapes. A native Texan, her inspiration is derived primarily from long road trips across the state. From power lines to empty fields, the aesthetic of the stark Texas landscape is translated into her work, capturing images that are at once lonely and captivating. Renfro’s intention is that by drawing attention to such objects, the viewer too, will appreciate their quiet unassuming beauty. Currently living in San Francisco, but holding on to her Texan roots, Renfro is becoming increasingly successful and her paintings are sought after throughout the United States. She was named "Artist to Watch" by Southwest Magazine in October 2006 and was featured in American Art Collector magazine, August 2008.

Textiles, quilting and most recently the role of new mother have inspired the pottery of Amy Sanders. She finds herself conflicted with the joyful energy of raising a family and the desire for solitude and creative studio time. He current work explores this new identity, invites touch and evokes and sense of comfort. Amy’s work has been exhibited in galleries throughout the United States, in several publications and the American Craft Council Shows.
