Many artists will know that it’s as important to develop a thick skin as it is to develop your creative skills, if you want to succeed. Sheri self professes to having tried her hand at various competitions over the years without success, so was bowled over to be selected for two London exhibitions over the summer.
Back in July, Sheri was selected as one of 21 finalists in the Holly Bush Emerging Woman Painter Prize, with her painting ‘Journey Home’, a small oil painting of a mother and child. The exhibition took place at Burgh House, Hampstead from 25-29 July 2018.
The 21 women painters represented in this room are finalists selected from 100s of entries to this prestigious prize…
Sheri attended the private view at Burgh House, Hampstead, delighted to have been supported by friends and family.
Shortly after this, her painting ‘She Walks in the Path of Those Before Her’, developed from the Townscape 2016: Reframing Local History project, was selected for the 157th Annual Exhibition from the Society of Women Artists. Sheri’s work for the project centred around East Grinstead Museum’s cross stitch sampler from 1878, sewn by a 10 year old girl from Baldwin’s Hill School. In an extension to the 2016 exhibition work, Sheri produced a further piece in 2017, which will now be exhibited at the Mall Galleries from September 25-30, 2018.
