Sandra Lewin is a representational artist who is known for her dynamic and colorful nature paintings. Sandra said, “I have been working on this series of jungle flora and fauna for the past year and am very pleased to have this opportunity to show it as a cohesive collection.

About Arches Gallery:
Arches is a co-op gallery located in Building W9 of the Workhouse Arts Center. The space is shared by approximately 20 artists. The Workhouse complex was once a D.C. facility and was reborn as a center for the arts ten years ago. The site includes a museum of the prison which includes many historical artifacts. One of the most interesting events in the prison’s history took place in 1917 when 72 suffragists were arrested and imprisoned there. The Workhouse is open five days a week.
