Andrea Petitto graduated from Cornell University and, in 1990, after a career as university professor and industry consultant, she moved to art. Andrea devoted herself to the study of painting and became a full-time artist with a particular passion for the human figure. She also became an avid amateur dog trainer and handler, competing at local, regional and national levels in agility. Andrea has combined her love of dogs and other animals with her interest in figural art leading to many paintings of her own dogs as well as others she encounters on the beaches of Cape Cod.
Andrea taught art classes at Finger Lakes Community College in Canandaigua NY, Cape Cod Art Association in Barnstable and Creative Arts Center, Chatham. She has had solo shows in Canandaigua and at the Copley Society in Boston, and has won awards in Rochester NY, Boston, and on Cape Cod.
Amy Sanders paints an Outer Cape that few see, bringing her keen eye and love to the task. She composes her paintings like musicians write sonatas, one careful note at a time. Amy captures the serenity and beauty of the pines, the power and delight of the ocean and bay, the peaceful and fragile landscape of the dunes, the joy of the beachgoers, and the weather of the Outer Cape.
Amy is an award-winning artist, Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America, and a respected art juror/judge in the New England art show circuit. She has exhibited in galleries in Connecticut and on the Cape, and has been represented by the Addison Art Gallery of Orleans, Massachusetts since 1998.
