Samantha Sherry, an Arkansas State University-Mountain Home (ASUMH) and Mountain Home High School graduate, will have an exhibit in the ASUMH Art Gallery located on the 2nd floor of the Vada Sheid Community Development Center (The Sheid) August 4-31. An opening reception will be held August 4 from 4 – 7 p.m. at the gallery. The exhibit is co-sponsored by ASUMH and the Ozark Regional Arts Council.
Sherry’s art is largely inspired by horses, and other equine subject matter. She works in oil, mixed media, and graphite. She also does commissioned work. Sherry lives in Tennessee as an art instructor and holds a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from Arkansas State University, a Master of Fine Arts and a Master of Art in Teaching, both from the Memphis College of Art.
About her work, Sherry says, “My work examines the relationships between memory, family, identity, and self. The collection, reassembling, and integration of non-traditional materials (i.e. horsehair) with more conventional art mediums and methods aid in the exploration of the continuums between these complex domains. Thinking about and through the body has shaped my art process and studio practice. Human and horse forms establish the experiential space of body as subject, not simply as object.” Learn more about her art by visiting www.samanthasherry.com
The public is invited to attend the August 4th reception and view Sherry’s work Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the ASUMH Gallery.
