Click on headline for story with photo(s)
By Gwen Heffner, Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea
On Saturday, October 24, Peggy Sherry, of Somerset, KY, will demonstrate techniques used in plein air painting during her demonstration from 9:30am-2:30pmCT/10:30am-3:30pmET,at the Kentucky Artisan Center, 200 Artisan Way, Berea, KY.
Plein air is a French expression meaning “in the open air,” and refers to the act of painting outdoors with the artist's subject in full view, allowing artists to capture the spirit and essence of a landscape or subject by incorporating natural light, color and movement into their works. While Sherry will be doing her oil painting demonstrating indoors at the center, she will follow and explain the steps that are specific to plein air painting.
Sherry has been painting most of her life, beginning as a teenager painting portraits of her friends and teachers. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in art and later a teaching certificate. For the past 20 years she has been living and painting in Somerset where she is a member of the Sheltowee Artisans and the Lexington Art League.
Sherry works in a variety of mediums, including oil, pastel and watercolor. While primarily a realist, she enjoys combining abstract or impressionistic backgrounds with a recognizable subject, and she paints everything from murals to equine portraits to national park landscapes and florals.
Sherry has a collaborative oil painting title, "Kentucky Afternoon Glow" created with Linda H. Gover in the center’s gallery exhibit, "It Takes Two: Collaborations by Kentucky Artisans."
The Kentucky Artisan Center, 200 Artisan Way, Berea, KY, is located just off Interstate 75 at Berea, Exit 77. The center’s exhibits, shopping and travel information areas are open daily, year-round, from 9amET to 6pmET, with the cafe open from 9:30amET to 4pmET Admission is free.
The center currently features works by more than 700 artisans from more than 100 counties across the Commonwealth. A gallery exhibit, "It Takes Two: Collaborations by Kentucky Artisans." is on display through February 27, 2016, and in the lobby "Weaving in Kentucky: A Continuing Tradition" is on display through November 14, 2015.
The center's website is: KentuckyArtisanCenter.ky.gov Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea is an agency in the Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
