    State line Artist Opens Lunar Exhibit: The Orb Series, A Meditation on Rising by Sandra Fink May
    Admission is FREE. The exhibition will run from March 31st to June 15th, 2018, and is open to the public weekdays from 9:00 AM to 4:00 pm and weekends by appointment.
    Abstract landscapes and photo luminescent paintings by state line artist Sandra Fink May are cause for reflection (literally) and meditation. She laughs when she advises, “Don’t hang one of these in your bedroom; its light might keep you awake.” That’s because Sandra uses a unique process to literally “charge” her paint with reflective light, so that in certain shadowed space, they truly glow in the dark. For paintings of the moon, surely that is appropriate.

    The works of this State line artist are part of a series of quarterly art exhibitions featured at Michael Fields Agricultural Institute and hosted by the Good Earth Church of the Divine, an Interfaith community. Part of the Good Earth mission is to recognize the healing effects of the arts upon the human spirit, even as it draws attention to earth care as a moral obligation and sacred calling.

    All sales of artwork are direct to the artist. Please join us to share the work of this planet-powered artist.
