Gallery Talk with Schroeder Cherry: Saturday, January 22 1pm to 3pm

 

Artists & Makers Studios on Parklawn Drive in Rockville will welcome featured artist Schroeder Cherry for his exhibit Future Voters and Other Stories in collage on wood along with two additional exhibits and Open Studios. The January 8th opening will run from 11am – 3pm and will usher in the new year. Enjoy additional exhibits – What I am Working On with Resident Artists, and Gallery 209 Artists exhibiting their latest work. Using paint, glass, keys, locks, buttons and other objects on wood, Schroeder Cherry creates open-ended narratives based on events from the past, present and his imagination. The Future Voter Series is inspired by children witnessing recent voter suppression efforts across the U.S.  The Barber shop Series reflects on those communal spaces where men gather to get a shave their hair cut. The Rainbow Keeper Series illustrates those responsible for mending colors and then displaying them in the sky to indicate a storm is over. Each of these pieces is open-ended because they welcome interpretation of the viewer. There is no one way to tell a story. Curated by Cathy Hirsh.

Exhibits for Schroeder Cherry and the Resident Artists will run from January 5th through January 26th. Gallery 209’s exhibit will run from January 6th through January 31st. Viewing hours are 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM, Monday-Saturday, and Sundays by chance or appointment.
