Current Exhibit: “A Passion for Realism" by Sandra Murphy

Sandra Murphy is an Aurora-based, classical trained oil painter with a passion for realism. Her still-life paintings feature antiques or vintage items, children's toys, old tools, and whatever catches her imagination.

Every painting is a challenge for the artist; therefore, Murphy's mission is to render these objects convincingly, thus revealing the extraordinary beauty in the seemingly mundane.

Sharing art, creativity, and imagination has the power to temporarily transform our minds to a joyful state. Murphy intends to create a brief moment of bliss as one travels through, "A Passion for Realism."

To inquire about purchasing artwork, please email Shelley Ware.

Enjoy the works by Sandra Murphy in Aurora’s Online Skylight Gallery during the month of July.

Photo Gallery: Online Skylight Gallery - July 2020 will appear here on the public site.
