Please plan to drop by Fresh Gallery to meet the artists, Alicia Farris and Cheryl Vowels, and enjoy wine and light appetizers September 8th from 3-5:30pm. The artists will be on hand to discuss their work and it would be a perfect opportunity to make a quick stop before hitting one of the fabulous downtown restaurants!
Alicia Farris is an award-winning artist and instructor whose water media work has been recognized in numerous National and International exhibits including recently in Qingdao, China. She was a 2017 recipient of the Edgar A. Whitney Transparent watercolor award at the Southwestern Watercolor Society exhibit and recently earned memberships to the prestigious Watercolor USA Honor Society and National Watercolor Society. She will be displaying a number of never before shown works of all sizes for the month of September at Fresh.
Cheryl Vowels has been a glass artist for about 40 years. She has shown her work in galleries statewide and has done customwork in southeast Missouri. She has now made Springfield her home for the last 11 years and is one of Fresh Gallery's newest juried resident artists. Her love for the natural world comes through in glass expressions. She utilizes rare glass, natural objects, kiln formed glass and other objects to produce one of a kind sculptural pieces. Many of these newer pieces will be shown for the first time in September.
