Art show opens at EMCC's Scooba campus

An exhibit of recent work by EMCC art instructor Terry Cherry opens Sunday at the college’s Scooba campus. The paintings in the show are landscape watercolors created with a three-part process.

    Recent work by longtime East Mississippi Community College art instructor Terry Cherry will be featured in an exhibit that begins Sunday and runs through Oct. 4 at the Scooba campus.

    The public is invited to the show’s opening reception in Aust Hall Sunday at 2 p.m.

    Cherry used a three-part process in this collection of landscape watercolors, working first with a wet paint technique to establish a general feel, then by scraping when the paintings were still damp and finally adding crisp detail with a brush once they had dried.

    “Each painting is a response to events, ideas and sensory perceptions that I encounter. Each stimulus creates further ideas and sets up an endless cycle of thinking that often folds back on itself,” Cherry said.

    “If I were not to draw or paint, the ideas would be like a vapor in my mind, ready to be blown into oblivion by the slightest breeze. I want the viewer to feel what I felt when experiencing my art, but also to bring their own ideas to it as well.”
