The City of Farmington Hills Cultural Arts Division will present an “Evening with an Artist” featuring successful local painter Sanda Cook, known for her bright colors that evoke energy and movement.
The talk will take place on Tuesday, Jan. 23, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., in the Rotating Exhibits Gallery at Farmington Hills City Hall, 31555 W. 11 Mile Rd.
The free event kicks off “Windows of My Soul,” the exhibit of Sanda Cook’s recent work that runs through February 9. Visitors to City Hall are welcome to stroll through and enjoy the art work Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Sanda Cook’s painting is influenced by the beautiful landscapes and architecture of her native Romania. She studied art at the Brasor School of Arts and her travels throughout Europe, Japan, and the U. S. have given her work a unique perspective and style. Cook has shown her work extensively in metro Detroit including exhibits at the Scarab Club, River’s Edge Gallery, Downriver Council of the Arts, Carr Center for the Arts, Detroit Artist Market, Grosse Point Art Center, Ariana Gallery, 4731 Studio, and the Padzieski Art Gallery.
“Art for me is a way of being alive, of connecting myself to the mysteries of the universe, nature, and the magnificent human soul,” said Cook.
The City’s Public Art Program features 74 talented artists from Farmington Hills/Farmington and surrounding communities. The artwork is on loan and displayed at City Hall through the end of 2018. Works feature a variety of media including clay, metal, fiber, paint, glass, and photography.
