Jacqueline Sandro: Memories of a Farmer's Granddaughter" at Stockton's Kramer Hall Building

Jacqueline Sandro's highly rated exhibit, "Memories of a Farmer's Granddaughter", honors her grandfather who was a South Jersey farmer. Long before stores like Lowe's and Home Depot dominated the gardening market, people bought their vegetable plants from local farmers like her grandfather. The artist treasures her recollections of working on the farm by his side with her aunts, uncles and cousins and expresses those memories through her figurative clay sculptures comprised of objects, containers, fruits, vegetables and farming imagery from an earlier time.
Mondays thru Saturdays, January 7 - 18, 2015 from 8:30am - 8:30pm
Kramer Hall Building, 30 Front St., Hammonton, NJ 08037
