“Beauty,” it’s said, “is in the eye of the beholder.” That truism is one of the things that makes art such an individual activity – everyone experiences it differently. So art is a great activity to practice on your own. But, at the same time, art is meant to be shared – the fact that everyone experiences a piece of art differently can lead to some fun and exciting exchanges of ideas, opinions and experiences. Sharing art is a catalyst for communication and a dynamic group experience.
Painter Cherry Rahn, has been busily creating at her home in Geneva while obediently staying close to home and relatively isolated. But she’s come up with a fun and unique way to share her art:
My new thing is a front door “gallery.” I’m hoping to give the walkers who walk up the hill past our house, and especially our mailman, a little surprise and hopefully a smile.
Cherry’s work was set to be featured at the Arts Center’s Flick Gallery this month – a show that fell victim to the coronavirus pandemic. She’s been working on a series that abstracts images she sees in nature – mainly rocks under water. Her work has been popular at the Arts Center and we’re looking forward to featuring her work at a future date.
How are you sharing your art? Let us know!
