    The Artwork of Sanda Cook

    Thursday(Nov 20)

    6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

    Sanda's Romanian heritage greatly influences her work today. The natural beauty of the landscape and architecture of her birthplace was her original inspiration as a young artist. Sanda studied under some of the best instructors in Romania and graduated from the Brasor School of Arts. The influence of her European sensibility, travels to Japan and her fresh experience of the United States have created a unique perspective for the work she creates. Sanda's abstracts and impressionistic landscapes have been described as 'bold and fearless, with explosive color and energy.' Her art and photography appear in private collections across Europe, Japan and the U.S.

    According to Sanda, "My art and my life cannot be separated...a spirit together, forever..."

About the Emerging Artist Program: The Emerging Artist program started in January of 2012. Curated by veteran artists and Scarab members, VATO and Adam Owen Layne, the program was created to spotlight metro Detroit artists of all mediums who are up-and-coming or considered the Who's Who of their inner subculture, but may lack the necessary exposure they need to get in front of the mainstream public.

 The Scarab Club is using this program to help the community see and appreciate art that they may not have the opportunity to see or know about. Budding artists need exposure, need to be cultivated and supported, and this program hopes to do so. It also helps entice new membership to the Scarab Club, since the century-old non-profit has opened doors for many artisans over the years, and being a part of their regular showcases can be win-win since it also adds new blood to the mix, and a fresh perspective on today's art.

Although Scarab Club has had decades of events and exhibitions that cater to all ages, this Emerging Artist Series is the first of it's kind. The spotlighted artists are hand picked and given the freedom to display and represent their work in their own solo show, with NO COMMISSION taken by the Scarab. There are so many stories to be told in metro Detroit, and this showcase allows the artist sole freedom to show their vision and perspective of life, without a jury deciding what the public wants to see. It's fresh and it's raw. This 2014 Series will be hosted and curated by VATO and Adam Owen Layne.
