This summer, the Carl Cherry Center for the Arts illuminates the connection between the artwork and poetry of Jeanne D’Orge (Mrs. Carl Cherry) and contemporary local artists and poets in celebration of the center’s seventy-fifth year.
Opening Friday, July 14th, Shared Visions: The Cherry Center at Seventy-Five will include paintings, drawings and sculpture by ten area artists displayed alongside select works by Jeanne D’Orge from the Cherry Center’s private collection. Participating artists include Tracey Adams, Robert Armstrong, Rob Barnard, Jennifer Brook-Kothlow, Jamie Dagdigian, Judith Foosaner, Susan Hyde Greene, Ken Hale, Margaret Rinkovsky, and the Temple Sisters. An artists’ reception will be held Friday, July 14th, from 5-7pm. The event is free and open to the public.
Artists featured in this exhibition have created works that reinterpret and remix elements, themes and the palette of Jeanne D’Orge, and highlight ways art inspires across time. Their works speak to the expanding diversity of the stories we want to tell, and illustrate how today’s artists continue to find inspiration in the methods and pictorial traditions from the Cherry Center’s rich history.
The exhibit will close Saturday, September 23rd.
