Celebrate the new year with the Center for Green Urbanism Tubman-Mahan Gallery with a solo exhibition of works by Sandra D. Davis- Journey with Paper. Artist Sandra D. Davis transforms paper in various forms to create unique images and one of a kind works of art.

Sandra D. Davis works with recycled paper and items that can be used as painting surfaces that we as consumers throw away. Davis states “The common theme of my work is generally female oriented, afro centric portraits with specific themes.”  Other pieces are abstract in nature exploring movement, color and materials. Considered art that is “Green” or “Re-purposed”, the medium is “mixed media” which consist of paper from magazines, shredded documents, paper towels, tissue paper and gift bags along with other found papers.  She incorporates acrylic paint and utilizes the leftover acrylic skins as well. .” The technique allows the work to take on movement based on the application.  It can be bound together with color and gel medium or it can be applied color specific to create a surface that cannot be done with paint alone.

Davis holds a degree in Commercial Art from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. She lives with her husband, photographer Aaron Davis, and two sons in Gaithersburg, MD. She actively participates in exhibitions throughout the Maryland, Virginia, and District.

Tubman-Mahan Gallery is located at The Center for Green Urbanism 3938 Benning Road NE Washington.  Contact the gallery at 202.506.3867 or visit the gallery online at www.centerforgreenurbanism.org
