Kim Sandara is a queer, Laotian/Vietnamese, artist based in Northern Virginia. In 2016 she graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art with a BFA in General Fine Arts. She makes stream-of-consciousness paintings which interpret sounds into visuals and is currently working on a graphic novel on her coming out story. Although Kim’s illustrations are often narrative and her paintings are abstract, her overall focus is to encourage empathy, wonder and self-reflection.
About the Fleur and Charles Bresler Residency: In honor of VisArts patrons, Fleur and Charles Bresler, VisArts invites applications and proposals from local, national, and international artists for a four month residency at VisArts at Rockville. This residency provides a unique opportunity for a dynamic individual artist or collaborative artist team to create a new body of work, evolve an existing body of work, or develop a project in a stimulating, supportive environment. Studio space is provided free of charge. The residency encourages interaction, dialogue and exploration both within the VisArts artist community and the larger Rockville community as well. The residency offers the gift of time and space to three artists and/or collaborative artist teams each year to experiment and realize new work. The current Bresler Resident Artists present their work in a solo exhibition at VisArts.
