Memory and Illusion Exhibit by Sandra Dovberg
June 28 – July 24 • Jo Ann Rose Gallery


Reception: July 10 from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

A retrospective exhibit of more than 50 original paintings by Reston-based painter Sandra C Dovberg will be shown in the Jo Ann Rose Gallery at Reston Community Center Lake Anne through Sunday, July 24. Everyone is welcome to an informal reception to meet the artist at the gallery on Sunday, July 10 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Dovberg’s solo exhibit, Memory and Illusion, is a highly eclectic collection of paintings that show the versatility of the artist, who is also an award-winning silversmith and jewelry designer. Her painting styles range from representational to abstract created with acrylics, watercolors, oil, pastels and mixed media in a wide range of subject matter and sizes. This collection of works is a rare opportunity to experience the broadness and depth of Dovberg’s opus demonstrating the evolution of her style from pure abstraction to abstracted realism featuring her vibrant yet delicate palette.

Sometimes dramatic, sometimes conceptual, sometimes fantastical, sometimes whimsical and humorous, Dovberg’s intent is to inspire a genuine emotional connection to the subject matter and to simultaneously provide a glimpse into her perceptions and reactions to the world while stimulating viewers to explore their own.

Sandra C Dovberg graduated from Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, NY, with a degree in studio art with a focus on metalsmithing and jewelry design. She worked under the mentorship of internationally acclaimed painter, sculptor and jewelry designer Earl Pardon, whose painterly metal enamel masterpieces inspired her sense of color and design that has been described as “muscular femininity.”

Even before her graduation, one of her bracelets was accepted in the prestigious Young Americans exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Crafts in New York City. A large abstract metal sculpture created by Dovberg was selected for permanent display by the college upon her graduation. Find details about the artist and view the vast variety of her works at
