“Some of my fondest memories are of the joys of making art, from kindergarten plaster hand prints to more evolved techniques in high school such as wood cuts and silk screening. I have finally settled on painting as my passion, and work in oils as well as with ink and watercolors. I find inspiration from the many great masters of the 20th century, and am particularly drawn to the Abstract Expressionists. I find the works of Kandinsky, Klee, Pollock, Rothko, Picasso, and DeKooning, to mention a few, among the most compelling to me. I am less interested in how well an artist can depict a certain subject as I am in how the painting hits me emotionally. I am more drawn to the mood a painting creates than I am to how realistic it is. My goal in painting is to evoke the imagination of the viewer in such a way that their emotions are charged.”

“I’ve been painting almost my whole life. I began with oils when I was in middle school but when my own children were born, I switched to acrylics. My style has changed and developed a lot over the years. The paintings you will see in the Gallery are acrylic or mixed media.

I love texture so in my abstracts I sometimes use gesso, modeling paste, sand and coffee grounds to achieve different looks.

I am a Johnstown native and have lived here all my life. Whether painting, wood-working, or doing mosaics, I’m mostly self-taught. I’ve learned a lot from taking classes from local artists and find teaching others to be very rewarding.

I hope you enjoy my work as much as have enjoyed creating it.” – Sandy Vigna
