Local artist, Andrew Roy displays 26 stunning works in a solo show, Reflections, at the Faulkner Gallery West in May. Opening night is Thursday May 3 between 5 and 8:30 p.m.

A member of both the Abstract Art Collective and the Santa Barbara Art Association, Roy’s works are in private collections throughout the United States.

“Art flourishes where there is a sense of adventure, a sense of nothing having been done before, of complete freedom to experiment,” says Roy. His award winning art has been shown in numerous galleries and shows in Santa Barbara and elsewhere, including Sullivan Goss, Gallery 113, CASA, the Santa Barbara Tennis Club and ArtSEE/JCC.

Faulkner Gallery West is located at 40 E. Anapamu St., Santa Barbara. The show is on view May 3-31.
