August 26
Sandra Freckleton Gagon   
Born in Salt Lake City, Utah, Sandy – a preeminent realist painter – carries on the traditions and canons of classical art ideology practiced from the Renaissance down through 19th century. Her paintings and drawings demonstrate her virtuosity, a manifestation of unparalleled technical excellence, which result in great works of lasting beauty. Sandy’s unsurpassed knowledge of anatomy, color theory and design, facilitate her portrayal of the human condition – in all its complexities – with breathtaking elegance. Adept at all genres, her still life paintings excel at depicting her deep love of objects and how they are affected by light and shadow; they are metaphoric landscapes of symmetry and solemnity.

Sandy’s husband is writer Dave Gagon. They have three children.
