Sandra Keller

Stop by the Hutchinson Public Library to see artwork by Sandra Keller during the month of August.

Artist's Statement:

"I was inspired by earth and clay while growing up on a farm in the Smoky Valley of Kansas. As a child sitting barefoot in my father's freshly plowed furrows, I loved the smell of the earth and the feel and glow of the dark brown gloss of the soil cast in the sunlight.

Learning to be resourceful from my mother was the road which led to my creativity. I enjoy sculpting animals in expressive ways often relaying a thought to us humans.

I have attended clay workshops and studied clay from some of the finest clay artists in the country: Gordon Zahradnik, Ray Kahmeyer (Kansas Artists) and Warren McKenzie, Philippe Faraut, Lincoln Fox, Walt Horton, and Bruno Lucchesi, all nationally recognized for their outstanding sculpture. I also studied sculpture at Hutchinson Community College and at the Wichita Center for the Arts.

It is my desire to create insightful beauty and expression through sculpture by using the earth, which I love, as my medium."
