Sandi Neiman Lovitz holds a B.A. in Art Education from Penn State Univ. and taught art in the Pittsburgh public school system before moving to Philadelphia. In addition to painting, she has pursued her passion for art through various businesses, including designing and manufacturing functional acrylic art pieces, and professional sign painting. She developed a line of hand painted clothing sold throughout Greater Philadelphia, did murals in personal and commercial areas, and created a line of hand-painted furniture represented by several galleries in the area.
Neiman Lovitz is currently on the board of DaVinci Art Alliance, and a member of ARTsisters, a group of women who are professional visual artists that support each other and reach out to women and children in the community. She has been juried into many exhibitions, including the Delaware Art Museum”s centennial exhibition, the Berks Art Alliance at the Reading Art Museum, and “Art of the State 2021” at the Pennsylvania State Museum in Harrisburg. She was awarded the Nolan Painting Award at the Main Line Art Center by celebrated artist Moe Brooker. Her work has been part of the Merrill Collection in West Chester, PA, and exhibited at The Susquehanna Art Museum.
As a teenager, Neiman Lovitz was thunderstruck by a Franz Kline painting at the Carnegie Museum of Art. She felt it gave her the freedom to see beyond the traditional realism she had been taught. Now, when she stands in front of a blank canvas, she has the experience of jumping through a portal into a world of magic and strange logic, full of phantasmal shapes, glowing colors, and glorious marks where stories await the viewer.
