Sandy Thai has been hired by Davis Downtown to coordinate the Second Friday ArtAbout festivities. Her task is to build upon the many artists and venues who participate in this popular monthly event that brings hundreds of people to downtown Davis.

“I have frequented many Second Friday ArtAbouts,” Thai said in a news release. “They have always been so lively with artists, music and wine poured all around. It’s an amazing vibe. I want to keep the ArtAbout essential in the community.”

Added Stewart Savage, director of Davis Downtown, “The Second Friday ArtAbout is the cornerstone of our growing arts community. It showcases the many exciting artists who call Davis home as well as artists from the surrounding region. We are eager to see how Sandy will add her signature style to this growing community event.”

Thai was born and raised in San Jose, and moved to Davis to attend UC Davis. She decided to make the community her home because of the friendly atmosphere and the town’s receptiveness to the arts.

Thai is the co-founder of RockBand University, a school of rock-and-roll for local youths, and she works as a gallery assistant at the Pence Gallery in downtown Davis. In addition, Thai works on her own art in a variety of media, including acrylic, mixed media, encaustic and jewelry.

Thai succeeds Katrina Wong as ArtAbout coordinator. Wong is the new assistant to the director of the Nelson Gallery at UC Davis.
