LEWISBURG, WV - On display Sept 2 through Oct. 26 in Carnegie Hall's Museum Gallery is Sandra King's "Windows in Time" exhibit.

The artist will be holding a reception from 5-8 p.m. on Sept. 6. The galleries at Carnegie Hall are open and free to the public Monday through Friday 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 1 – 4 p.m.  Many of the works are available for purchase.  The purchase of artwork exhibiting at Carnegie Hall benefits the artist and the Hall.

King is a full time professional artist working in water media and pastel. She resides on a 50-acre farm in Clay County with her husband, Wayne. Inspired by the constantly changing seasonal color, brilliant night skies and dramatic sunsets found in the mountains of central West Virginia, her latest series in watercolor and mixed media collage, "Windows in Time," expresses the underlying essence of nature.

These paintings capture the timeless landscape to the outer reaches of the universe as seen through the artist's eyes and imagination.

She holds graduate degree in fine art from Marshall University with postgraduate hours from West Virginia University and the West Virginia College of Graduate Studies. King has worked with many nationally known artists in workshops across the country.

King is a retired art teacher from Clay County High School and continues to teach private classes in her studio. She is a member of the Maryland Pastel Society, the West Virginia Arts and Crafts Guild, the Randolph County Community Arts Center, and current president of the Allied Artists of West Virginia.

King's work is marketed by Tamarack and Art Emporium in West Virginia and Topanga Canyon Gallery Los Angeles.
