Occupying the museum’s large Center Gallery, “Constellations: Roger Sandes” features 21 paintings created by the artist over the past 27 years. According to BMAC’s chief curator Mara Williams, the exhibit is organized as a series of constellations, each consisting of a recent painting displayed alongside one or more older paintings upon which the recent one is based.
Sandes and his wife, collage artist Mary Welsh, live and work in Williamsville. Sandes’ artwork has been exhibited and collected throughout the United States and abroad. Sandes co-founded southern Vermont’s Rock River Artists collective.
“Constellations: Roger Sandes” remains on view at BMAC through January 8, 2018.
