Sydney McQuade Otto: Guided Gallery Tour 
Presented by Butler Arts Presents

Sydney McQuade Otto is an award-winning Hoosier Salon artist and has been honored at the annual SALI National Abstract Show.

Sydney’s relationship with the arts began with a gift of oil paints at the age of seven. Largely self-taught, Sydney has developed a style as unique as she is. Although her paintings follow no particular conventions, her work can be recognized by the soft melding of color. Texture, the use of light and paintings that emanate emotion are all elements threaded throughout her body of work. Sydney was first introduced to abstract art through her uncle, Justin Snow, a noted abstract painter. His paintings hung on the walls of her childhood home and he continues to be an important influence in Sydney’s painterly world. Workshops with Dublin painter Timothy Hawksworth encouraged exploration and opened doors to abstract expressionism.

This exhibit runs from October 9 to November 2. Artwork is available for viewing during lobby hours, 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM Monday through Friday. Art is also available for viewing during events for patrons attending the event.
