Art for Life

Unlike many artists, Sandy Fisher did not spend her early years studying art. However, she was always creating, working on embroidery, macramé, stained glass, and finally photography and painting. But it was not until surviving her second cancer diagnosis that Sandy became a full time artist.

Motivated by nature, faith, and a deep love for life, this past president of the Santa Clarita Artists Association will share what moves her to create. Join us for a touching conversation with one of Santa Clarita’s inspiring artists.

Thursday – August 25, 2016 – 6:30 pm, at the Old Town Newhall Library

His long list of clients include Walt Disney, Fox, CBS, A&M Records and Microsoft.

An accomplished oil painter, Lewis has exhibited his work throughout the country, including award-winning paintings on display at the Pentagon in Washington D.C.
