Solo Show - Paris Stories at Uni-T
Sandrine Fine Arts & Jewelry – SOLO SHOW at Uni-T by Sandrine Colson from January 17th to March 17th, 2018 ABOUT “PARIS STORIES” I have always imagined myself as a teller of “stories” except that images, landscapes, col- ors, owers, mixed media, sculptures, paintings, and other ways of expressing myself as an art- ist using colors, materials and textures, are my ways of telling stories. I am a painter of stories. All my pieces have a story to tell. Some for the viewer to nd on their own, some more guided through my brush or the theme of the piece. “Paris Stories” describes a series of unique and original pieces of mixed media work where each story - each piece - represents an unique se- ries of events, memories, words, and accounts of imaginary or real people, past events or emo- tional journeys related to Paris. Each invites the viewer to let his or her imagination decides where the story goes, somewhat guided by the composition I created based upon my own jour- ney in Paris. This journey is just beginning ... “Art is the expression of one’s inner self. It represents what is, has been, will be, or is worth arguing or represent- ing. It’s an ever evolving story of imagination.” Sandrine For additional information, visit www.artofheart.com or www.shopuni-t.com

This lecture will trace the path of the female fan from the turn of the 20th century, when baseball was professionalized, to the current day, when the league is trying to do better but still comes up short. Women in the stands have a rich history and have been a major part of baseball's story, even if they're often left out of the telling.
