Center displays fine art

PULASKI —“Abstraction & Inspirations,” works by local artist Sandy Horton, are currently on display at the Fine Arts Center for the New River Valley in downtown Pulaski.
When Horton isn’t working at her day job as a lead programmer/analyst for Moog Components Group in Blacksburg, she said she can be found in front of her easel at her home in Radford.
Even as a child growing up in Lynchburg, Horton loved to draw and to make paper cut-outs. From simple doodles to complex cubism, she said she has always been interested in shapes, forms, textures and colors, which still influence her artwork today.
Throughout high school and college, as Horton was exposed to the different styles and works of masters such as Picasso, Gris and Cezanne, she said she began to develop her own style of interpretation of familiar objects.
Triangles and textured edges are frequently featured in her works as forms that enhance and express the style of her subjects with a vibrant and rich color pallet that emits a warm glow.
She hopes that those who visit her exhibit, which features the world through her eyes over the past 30 years translated into artwork, will feel free to interpret and deconstruct the images to bring a new vision of the subjects presented.
Horton is a graduate of Lynchburg College with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, and an alumna of New River Community College with an associate degree in computer programming.
Currently, she resides in Radford with her husband, David, and their dog, Bandit.
Horton’s artwork will be on display now until Oct. 11.
A reception will be held today from 2 to 4 p.m. at the FACNRV, which is located at 21 W. Main Street in Pulaski.
