WMAG September artist, Sherry Grant Submitted

NORWAY — The Main Street Gallery will feature Sherry Grant as Artist of the Month through September.

Sherry taught school for many years, and after retiring in 2016, decided she would try to develop her artistic style, as she comes from a musical and artistic family that goes back for generations. These influences were deeply woven into her teaching, and are now, into her art.

Sherry is drawn to bold colors that reflect in her paintings of nature and of creatures she’s met in her childhood and beyond. Her animals are often painted with a bit of whimsy and strong elements of color brought out in acrylic, colored pencil, or watercolor mediums. With an eye for detail, she likes to bring the eyes of her creations into focus to try to capture the wild spirit within them. With each painting, she strives to give each creature the respect for its individuality and divineness that they inherently possess.

Sherry spends her free time with family and friends who enjoy hiking, biking, and horseback riding. She lives in Norway, Maine with her husband, dog, and 2 cats.

The Main Street Gallery is open Tuesdays through Fridays from 11 to 5, and Saturdays from 10 to 2. For more information find us on Facebook or write to [email protected]
