Award-winning artist Sandra Landergott, who has pieces in private collections throughout the United States and Europe, is sharing some of her original work with the Gainesville area.
Some of her pieces are on display at the Quinlan Visual Arts Center Mini Gallery at Regions Center, 303 Jesse Jewell Parkway, in downtown Gainesville.
“Constellations” is a series of recent encaustic work by Landergott. It is on loan to the gallery in partnership with the Quinlan Visual Arts Center, and is one of many shows featuring emerging North Georgia artists.
Landergott is a member of the National Association of Women Artists, the oldest art organization for women, founded in New York in 1889. Locally, she is also member of the Quinlan Visual Arts Center and The Georgia Art League. Her work has been displayed in numerous galleries across the southeast.
Landergott has painted in Florida, North Carolina, Georgia, Ireland, France and Italy. She uses the encaustic painting technique, which dates back to the 5th century BC. Encaustic is composed of beeswax and resin. It is applied to a surface in molten form and fused to create a variety of effects. Its visual properties make it perhaps the most opulent painting material and is the most durable of all artists’ paints, since wax is impervious to moisture and over time will retain all the freshness of a newly finished work.
