Hope Sandrow is a conceptual artist who’s multidisciplinary art practice is her ‘way’ of life; including real engagements with the world such as Sketches of Local History, to both inform and direct her artistic vision. 

Sandrow’s current on site project open air studio spacetime references the social (issues relevant to the environment) and art history (William Merritt Chase and Samuel Parrish) in and around her own “backyard” in Shinnecock Hills (see Platform: Genius Loci, Parrish Art Museum, Nov 2012- March 2013)  in the realm of both personal and global. A study within a micro environment, paralleling the macrocosm: Earth. Sandrow’s home and studio was formerly a carriage/gatehouse (c 1893) as part of the Jane and E. Boudinot Colt Estate adjacent to the home/studio of William Merritt Chase; on lands sold by Samuel Parrish when president of the Long Island Improvement Society. http://www.hopesandrow.com/live/ABOUT_open_air_studio.htmlhttp://www.hopesandrow.com/spacetime/spacetime__a_study.htmlhttp://www.hopesandrow.com/live/__cache/__cache.htmlwmc_-_video_Alicia_Longwell.htmlhttp://parrishart.org/about/historyhttp://www.hopesandrow.com/genius_loci/About_PLATFORM__Genius_Loci.htmlhttp://parrishart.org/exhibitions/genius-loci-inaugural-platform-project-hope-sandrow#.ULe-g6Uv36shttp://parrishart.org/exhibitions/genius-loci-inaugural-platform-project-hope-sandrow#.ULe-g6Uv36se._boudinot_colt.htmlhttp://www.hopesandrow.com/site/about.htmlshapeimage_3_link_0shapeimage_3_link_1shapeimage_3_link_2shapeimage_3_link_3shapeimage_3_link_4shapeimage_3_link_5shapeimage_3_link_6shapeimage_3_link_7shapeimage_3_link_8
