The 39th Annual Downtown Festival & Art Show is proud to present this year’s poster image, featuring the work of Sandra Matasick. Matasick’s career began by taking one simple class in jewelry making where she was immediately hooked. Her passion for jewelry making is further exemplified by the time she crawled into the window of her school’s locked studio to work on her craft all through the night. Matasick went on to earn her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Metalsmithing from the University of Kansas and her Master of Fine Arts in Metalsmithing from the State University of New York, New Paltz. After obtaining her degrees, she worked in jewelry stores creating custom pieces for clients before starting her own business.
