Sandra Payne: 𝘈 𝘞𝘰𝘳𝘭𝘥 𝘰𝘧 𝘚𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘦 Exhibition Opening Reception| Projects + Gallery

Please join Projects+Gallery & Sandra Payne, Friday, May 13th from 6 to 8 PM for a public reception in celebration of Payne and the opening of 𝘈 𝘞𝘰𝘳𝘭𝘥 𝘰𝘧 𝘚𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘦. We are pleased to introduce you to 𝘈 𝘞𝘰𝘳𝘭𝘥 𝘰𝘧 𝘚𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘦, a new exhibition of work by late artist and Saint Louis native Sandra Payne on view at Projects+Gallery May 13–August 6. Payne’s series of jewel collages are products of an experiment in vision that examine conceptions of beauty, value, and perception. 𝘈 𝘞𝘰𝘳𝘭𝘥 𝘰𝘧 𝘚𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘦 magnifies the alchemical aesthetic experience of her practice, presenting a selection of her widely unseen series of paper jewelry collages in tandem with examples of her sculptural and installation work set within patterned environments rendered from her collages. This exhibition endeavors to give Sandra Payne her due—to stand as testament to the manifold work of a Black woman artist whose name has not been said enough.
