Featured Artist  ~  March 2018

Sandra Wagner


Fiber artist Sandra Wagner's passion for freeform design and color drive her to make art quilts and design wearable art. Living in the mountains with ever-changing views provides her with a daily abundance of inspiration. "Being able to work in a home studio surrounded by tall pines, changing seasons, and views of wildlife keep the creativity flowing," she explains. Sandra will be the featured artist at Sutter Creek Gallery in March.

Fabric has been in Sandra's life as long as she can remember, starting with making doll clothes. It was a natural thing to go from sewing children and then adult clothing to making wearable art and art quilts, hand dyeing many of her fabrics. She is a former quilt shop owner who has taught workshops for many years. She teaches and lectures for private groups and at quilt guilds, including the International Quilt Festival in Houston. Her garments, hand-dyed batiks and art quilts have appeared in numerous magazines.

Sandra is an award-winning quilter with many pieces in private collections. She has been juried into four Studio Art Quilt Association (SAQA) regional shows. For the past eight years, the artist has been the curator for the annual five-month gallery show "Artistry in Cloth" at the Shenadoah Vineyard in Plymouth, CA. Wagner is a member of numerous quilt guilds, including the local Sierra Gold Quilters Guild, as well as several art associations.

Sutter Creek Gallery invites you to visit with Sandra Wagner at the reception in her honor on Saturday, March 3, from 2 to 5 p.m. We hope to see you there!
