SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2016 | 2pm-5pm
Join us on Saturday Afternoon, 11/19/2016 from 2-5pm for a Special Artist Talk with Sherry Dooley. All the way from New Orleans, Sherry will be here to meet and great, and to talk about her work, inspirations, and life in general.
Dooley’s newest series, “Half the Population”, speaks to the value of women, in our world, half the population…. Inspired by the book “Half The Sky”, written by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn.
“My work comes from within. I very rarely paint what one sees in the world around them. It’s more about what one feels and all the different moods that follow. Using symbols, such as crows, spirals, linear lines, thick texture, dunce hats and queen crowns, my work unfolds into a magical, metaphorical female realm. My women are dealing with life, love, sorrow, deep thought, joy and the challenges of learning lessons. One might comment “but she’s just sitting there?” and my reply to that is, “Have you looked into her eyes?”
