About the Event
Join us for the opening reception for local artist Sandra Bottinelli.
Bottinelli, throughout her career, has bounced rhythmically between abstract and realism. Being highly logical and simultaneously emotional, a combination resulting from the genetics of a Chilean father and a German mother, the artist was forced to make this jump often. Working in oils, she attempts to modernize her subjects using traditional oil techniques.
Bottinelli earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Michigan in 1995 with continued studies in Salamanca and Barcelona, Spain. In 1996 the artist moved to Portland, Oregon where she continued to paint, study and display. She quickly became a regional favorite and her works were shown in numerous galleries over the course of seven years. Later, moving to Orlando, Florida for a short stay of three years, she participated in the art fairs that are popular throughout the state receiving many honors and awards for her work.
Bottinelli now finds herself in Asheville, North Carolina where she works out of her studio and gallery, whiteSPACE, located in the Wedge Studios of the River Arts District.
