Happy Birthday: Sacha Kolin
Sacha Kolin was born on May 9th. She was a mid century artist who exhibited quite a bit but quickly became unknown after she passed away.
Her name has resurfaced after a book about the artist was published, Look Up, The Life and Art of Sacha Kolin by Lisa Thaler.
The author took interest in Sacha's work after purchasing a piece at a local exhibit. Being an experienced family historian and genealogist, the author set out to uncover the story of the artist behind the work. I haven't read the book yet but reviews reveal that Sacha's work was influenced by her father who was an engineer.
