Sandy Lamoey, who is the Galveston Art League’s Featured Artist from Oct. 31 to Dec. 1, will display many of her paintings in the league’s gallery, 2117A Postoffice St., Galveston. The gallery is open from noon to 6 p.m. Thursday-Sunday and during ArtWalk. Lamoey’s paintings plus about 100 additional pieces – 2-D and 3-D – exhibited by other Art League members will be for sale.
Although she began by creating realistic watercolor paintings, Lamoey evolved into abstracts, often using handmade fiber paper from Asia along with watercolors in works such as her Space Series; “Ancient Abyss” (shown) is an example. She also paints her abstracts in oil, brushing on bold colors to capture the imagination; “Stellar Spectra” (shown) is an example.

Lamoey’s life experiences laid the groundwork for her artistic pursuits. She majored in graphic design at Ohio University, with an emphasis on typography and illustration. During many years when she resided in Europe, Lamoey regularly visited museums and studied Old Masters paintings. Current modern artists also have influenced her work.
Like all Galveston Art League Featured Artists, Lamoey is a professional member of the all-volunteer organization (learn more about membership levels for artists and non-artists at www.GalvestonArtLeague.com – click on “Join”). She exhibits regularly at the gallery and received a first-place award in a 2018 Art League competition for her watercolor “Red River.”
The Art League holds three competitions per year as part of its mission to promote art education, regional artists and appreciation of the visual arts in Galveston County and beyond. Visit www.GalvestonArtLeague.com for details.
The nonprofit Art League supports itself largely through memberships, contributions, and an annual fall gala. The league, founded in 1914, has never had a salaried staff member.
