Luminosity: Artworks by Penny G. Anderson & Cheryl Sattler

Exuberant bromeliads and orchids spring to life in tropical technicolor while abstract shapes and organic forms evoke the feeling of an exotic oasis.

Though the subject matter is similar, the media and techniques these artists employ could not be more different. Penny G. Anderson is a masterful painter, bending watercolor to her will, whereas Cheryl Sattler coaxes glass into organic shapes you have to see to believe. These disparate materials share similar characteristics and, even in the hands of an expert, they are not easily controlled. These spontaneous but skillful technicians capitalize on the inherent transparent quality of their art forms. Through a process of layering, their works achieve vibrant, saturated color, and dazzling special effects.  

Nearly 30 of their captivating artworks are on display in the Luminosity exhibit at the Artport Gallery. Penny G. Anderson is a prolific painter and a signature member of the Tallahassee Watercolor Society (TaWS), Georgia Watercolor Society, and the Watercolor Society of Alabama. A Tallahassee native and life-long resident of Florida, Anderson has concentrated on water media since 2004. She teaches locally at the Brush & Palette Studio and has offered her leadership on the TaWS board in a variety of capacities Sattler specializes in kiln-formed glass and she favors lush, vibrant colors and tantalizing textures. Her work has been widely exhibited and was nominated for the 2014 Martha Stewart American Made Award. The exhibition is one of many rotating exhibitions curated by the Council on Culture & Arts on behalf of the City of Tallahassee as part of the Art in Public Places program.
