THE GEORGE GALLERY PRESENTS:
A SOLO EXHIBIT BY ARTIST VICKI SHER
Charleston, SC--The George Gallery, located at 50 Bogard St., is hosting the opening of a show of new works by Vicki Sher on Friday, November 3, from 5-8 pm. Sher’s solo exhibit will be on view at the Gallery through November 30. This opening event is free and open to the public.
According to Anne Siegfried, The George Gallery owner and curator, “Vicki Sher’s ability to maneuver and utilize the space on a canvas is unique. Having been creating and exhibiting artwork for over two decades, Sher has developed a ‘personal language’ of colors and shapes, which she uses strategically to create pieces that are fluid and conversational. Sher’s connection between movement and open space, creates a type of energy that makes it feel as if her work could leap from the canvas. This, combined with her consistently bright color palette and tangible vibrancy is enhanced by her thoughtful compositions.”
Vicki Sher describes her work as “very intuitive and abstract-focused.”
“Decisions are made based on color, shape, line, space, negative spaces and layers. However, the work is grounded in natural forms, flowers, plants, domestic life, etc. I’ve drawn much of my inspiration from the world around me and, specifically, its recent changes. It's not political, but it does seem worth mentioning that this new work all began for me as if in response to a horrible reality. I chose to turn my back on certain negative aspects of the world and focus on those timelessness in beauty, love, nature, and joy. This is what I chose to make my work about: the complexity, surprises and playfulness all around us.”
The George Gallery is located in the Elliotborough neighborhood in Charleston SC at 50 Bogard Street, 29403. Regular business hours are Tuesday-Friday 10-5 pm, Saturday 11-5 and by appointment.
