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.”
