All Things Colorado

A wonderful opening! “All Things Colorado” at the Poudre Studio Galleries has great art from all over our beautiful state.

The juror’s chose my piece, Mountain Goats in July, as first place in the show. What an honor! An experpt from one of the juror’s statements:

“Sandra Hopkin’s “Mountain Goats in July”is my pick for first place. The sewn fabric image draws the viewer in with curiosity in the materials and how it was created. It is story-like yet has incredibly realistic lighting and proportions. Sandra’s skill is displayed in bringing different colored pieces of fabric together to create a distinct landscape. The interesting materials, subject matter, and story within are the layers which awaken curiosity and then hold the viewer’s attention. Part of the enchantment of this piece lies in the paradox of it being like a great master painter’s landscape yet is made using a new technique.”
