FEBRUARY 2, 2019: Cheryl Anne Grace, Revelry
Cheryl Anne Grace has a self-taught storytelling style of painting, which perfectly conveys her love of “this magical place” New Orleans. Her show Revelry captures the sometimes quirky individuality of the city, its unique customs and extravagant celebrations like Mardi Gras. Moving to New Orleans on my own in 2009 finally gave me the time and space I needed to endlessly paint. I never run out of inspiration in this vibrant and magical city that enraptures me with its deep, rich history, cherished architecture, music that begs you to stop and listen, colorful neighborhoods, mystery, and eccentric characters. I paint for people with soul! I paint New Orleans, points beyond, and imaginary places…My imagination was such an integral part of my childhood and created the wonderful solitary world in which I lived. That gift has carried through to my adult life and fed my need to create. I am a self-taught artist and I spend as much time researching and studying art as I do painting it. My work is done in the studio, from photos I take constantly while making my way around town, preferring the path less traveled, and from compositions that I create in my imagination… I do not create art to match the sofa! My intention is that you experience joy, amusement, sentimentality, some lesser-known places in New Orleans, a few points beyond, and places that are born in my imagination.
