The Dedham Library’s Featured Artist for the month of October will be: Sandy Coleman.

Join us in a reception celebrating and featuring her works.

ARTIST BIO

Sandy Coleman is an artist engaged in play. She is driven by an unrelenting curiosity and desire to explore various mark-making materials and concepts, most often revolving around the beauty, power and mystery of women. Her acrylic paintings and mixed-media collage works reflect her fascination with the unspoken language of patterns, which connects her to Alabama roots, where her grandmother’s handmade quilts spoke volumes square-by-square.

Sandy’s creations have been featured on HGTV, in Oprah magazine, and in exhibitions at colleges, museums and galleries in the Boston and Providence area. She is most proud of her small-but-meaningful contribution to the effort to help the victims of domestic abuse by designing an original ceramic plate every two years to be auctioned off at the REACH for the Stars celebrity fundraising event.

She teaches art classes at the Attleboro Arts Museum and continually seeks out opportunities to engage everyone in creative play.

Currently, the artist is a magazine editor at Wheaton College in Norton, Mass., after spending 20 years as a journalist working for the Orlando Sentinel and the Boston Globe. Words fill her days, but images fuel her nights.
