Interactive sand-and-water art


Pitkin Stearns will exhibit the Rainbow Vision Sand Pictures from Austrian artist Klaus Bosch at the Dallas Market Center during the FINDS Dallas Temp Show, Jan. 21-24.


“Sand and water filled into a sealed glass container is my technique allowing me to express inspirations coming through the environment,” said Klaus Bosch, artist and creator of the "sandpictures."
