Ludlow Food Centre welcomes third gallery artist
Ludlow Food Centre has welcomed its third artist in residence to its upstairs gift shop.
Zimbabwe-born Sandy Densem, now based near Ironbridge, studied Fine Art in Cape Town and holds an Advanced Diploma in Art and Creativity. She has painted and taught regularly for over 30 years. Sandy has had solo exhibitions in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana, the UK and New Zealand.
In addition to her painting, Sandy has also spent many years creating hand painted textiles, and produced a range of fabrics, graphics and paintings for a group of Safari Lodges in Zimbabwe.
She has continued with this work and produces a range of individually designed and hand painted fabrics.
Her exhibition at Ludlow Food Centre includes large canvases and pieces on mixed media.
Sandy said: “I’m delighted to be hosting my art at Ludlow Food Centre. My work is an expression of my environment, while also being influenced by my time in Africa and New Zealand.
"The viewer can explore the textures and find layers of meaning for themselves.”
Paul Hill, Commercial Manager at Ludlow Food Centre, added: “We’re delighted to have Sandy on board with us at Ludlow Food Centre.
"Her abstract art brings together her background and personal environments to create magnificent wall pieces.
"We’re encouraging all of our customers to spend time admiring her work during their visit!”
