Sandy Chism Art

SANDY CHISM (USA, 1957–2013)

Sandy Chism was born in America in 1957 and was a Professor of Painting in the Newcomb Department of Art at Tulane University from 1996–2012. She had a BFA from the University of Kansas and an MFA from the University of Arizona, where she studied under famed painter Robert Colescott. Chism had six solo exhibitions with the gallery since 1999, and her work has been exhibited locally, nationally and internationally. In July of 2000, a 10-year survey of her work was exhibited at the Contemporary Arts Center, entitled “Sandy Chism: A Survey” and included paintings as well as large-scale mixed-media installations. A catalog was published by the Contemporary Arts Center. She has received grants from the Louisiana Division of the Arts and the Pollock Krasner Foundation and been awarded residencies at the Santa Fe Art Institute and the First International Colony of Artists in Debrecen, Hungary. Her paintings are featured in the permanent collections of the New Orleans Museum of Art, Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation Collection in Los Angeles, Emprise Bank in Wichita, Kansas, and Liquitex Paints, New Jersey. Chism's work has been reviewed in Art in America, New Orleans Art Review, The Times-Picayune/The New Orleans Advocate, Gambit Weekly, Forum Magazine and The Journal Santa Fe. She is known for her works that combine the ethereal and the concrete. Similarly, her work often incorporates imagery to describe the flux between opposites in nature such as the cycles of life and death, the single versus the multiple, the micro and the macro, stillness and frenzy and chaos versus order. On January 2nd, 2013, Chism died from ovarian cancer at age 55.
