Well-traveled artist at Furman

DOWNEY - Sandi Candiotty, an award-winning artist who has studied painting around the world, will give a demonstration of her work Oct. 26 at Furman Park.The demonstration will be part of the Downey Art League's general meeting that begins at 7:30 p.m. in Building 1. Candiotty grew up in Cleveland and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from UCLA. Inspired by the French impressionists, her paintings "capture the beauty and light in nature using brilliant color in timeless settings," according to a flyer from the Downey Art League. Although her favorite medium is oil, she also paints in acrylic, watercolor, pen and ink, and charcoal. Candiotty has studied plein air painting in France, Italy and Belgium, in addition to the New England states and the California coast. Last year, she traveled to Russia to study the Russian impressionist and artist Nicolai Fechin with Jove Wang. The community is invited to view Candiotty's demonstration. Admission is free.
