Gallery Hop – Nov. 17

The Carnegie Classics Art Exhibit explores the relationship between humanity, technology, memory, and many other themes in Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (1968). Artist talks will begin at 6:30PM. Featured artists who will be in attendance are Arturo Sandoval, Charlie Thacker, Rey Gonzalez, and Steve Broderson


What distinguishes Arturo Alonzo Sandoval from other fiber artist working architecturally is his choice to explore through innovation, creativity and recycling twentieth century industrial materials that had been designed as tapes or films. Incorporating these materials into woven or interlaced webs provides permutations for his design concepts which personalize into a visual vocabulary of sky, water, landscape and more recently, issues related to personal spiritual beliefs. Everyday Arturo is awed by beauty and how it influences our world. His desire is to somehow find magnificence and to create beauty from the residue of our culture. His place in the total world order is realized in the art that he creates.

Marissa graduated from Transylvania University in May 2020 with a BA in Studio Art and a minor in Art History. Her current artwork focuses on drawing a parallel between the way our brains may “glitch” and the way computers do, through the use of pixelation, fragmentation, and distortion. She approaches these ideas using a variety of media, including hand embroidery, cross-stitching, and video. Visit Marissa Price's website:
