“Imaginings” by Sheryl Crowell
Opening Reception: First Friday, May 6, 2016 from 6 pm to 9 pm
Exhibit on View: Wednesday, May 4 through Monday, May 30 from 11 am to 5 pm
Versatile local artist Sheryl Crowell marks her fifteenth year at Art First Gallery with new works featuring the imaginative use of recycled and whimsical materials. Best known for her sensitive and subtle manipulation of acrylic paint in images of archetypal women and children, in this show, Sheryl considered all media as fair game. She playfully incorporates metallic thread; beads; plastic bread tags; dried orchid petals, and rhinestones. Her intuitive use of unlikely materials generates a creative series of “party animals”.
Sheryl studied art at the University of Mary Washington. Her work has been featured at libraries in North Stafford, Fredericksburg and Bowling Green. She’s also participated in group shows in local restaurants and libraries. This is her seventh solo show at Art First.
