In the Spotlight Gallery:

Sandra Eshameshamweb was raised on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Her interest in art was developed at an early age and continued throughout her life. She was an educator and counselor in Wicomico County school system. During her college years she met and married Robert Esham, DDS. They have two married sons. Bob has been her greatest supporter, fan and critic.

Painting is Sandy’s passion. It is a way for her to express what she sees in her mind and feels in her heart. Composition, color temperature, value, shapes, and light play an important part in her paintings. Sandy loves to paint evocative portraits, luscious still life arrangements, and light filled landscapes. She is constantly looking for the light of everyday scenes, always desiring to emphasize the momentary vision of time and place.

Sandy completed her undergraduate degree at the University of MD. College Park and received her Masters of Ed. from Salisbury University, where she also studied art. She has studied with Louis Escobedo, Carolyn Anderson, William Schneider, and Jinchul Kim. After retiring as an educator and counselor, she has been painting full time. Her work has been exhibited in both galleries and private collections.

In the Artisan Showcase:

Ellison- pendantLaura Ellison is a self taught jeweler, creates designs contemporary jewelry with mixed metals and resin and sells her work all along the East Coast. Her time and energy are focused on creating jewelry that is bold and distinctive. Even as a child, Laura was always interested in craft making. Sixteen years ago, she found herself unhappy at her job, and deciding she needed a change, she began to pursue beading. Eventually she moved on to diamond and antique jewelry, followed by mixed metal and resin. Greatly inspired by nature, Laura’s pieces are colorful, textured and organic.
