Artist Spotlight: Sam Handleman

My friend Sam is a very talented guy. He is currently finishing his BFA in Printmaking at CCA and just had his senior art exhibit. I have always enjoyed Sam's work and was really delighted to find a small embroidered textile piece in his show. I love how abstract and eclectic it is! And how amazing is the stitch work on the face?!? Don't you love the different colors used to create the shading/shape of the face? You can read Sam's artist statement and see more pieces from the show in the photos below (click on them for a larger view) and you can find more of Sam's work at his Flickr page HERE.

  1. Ah I miss the printshop, my favorite place on campus. Does Jack still teach there?
