Sally A. Steinwachs
As a child, Sally Steinwachs tried her hand at many genres in the visual arts, with her mother’s enthusiastic encouragement. Later, Sally studied all media except oil painting with Jean Premo, a local painter.
A great deal of Sally’s artistic energy went into community-building efforts, bringing people together and creating programs to empower and assist city residents. Sally taught art in an after-school program on Jefferson Avenue and Genesee Street and incorporated art into community pursuits.
Besides her mentor, the late Jean Premo, Sally has studied under local artists David Braun, Wendy Gwirtzman, and Steve Carpenter. She carried one of her first paintings from that period in the first Rochester demonstration against the Iraq war.
In 2008, she worked on a number of artistic projects relating to the St. Salome Centennial Celebration. Now, Sally exhibits with the Artist Breakfast Group, and the Irondequoit Art Club. She is also a member of Rochester Contemporary. She is listed on Google - Sally's Shop by the Sea. Please contact her at 230-1436.
