Meet our December Featured Artists – Rebecca Lewis Smith and Cheryl Vowels. Rebecca’s experience as an artist began with a love for abstract expressionist painting, followed by an early career creating contemporary stained-glass window designs. She is well versed in oil and acrylic painting, charcoal, mixed media, and pastels. Much of what Rebecca does in the studio is deeply influenced by modern and ancient art and she revels in exploring all art museums. She is particularly fond of abstract expressionism and expressionism for how the styles communicate the artist’s individuality and spirit. Rebecca is a lifelong Missouri resident. She holds a BFA degree in painting and drawing, an MS in education, and has taught both art and gifted education in area schools. She is also a juried artist member of Best of Missouri Hands and the Gateway Pastel Society.
Cheryl started working in glass about 40 years ago. Her love for the medium and the way the light danced through it is what drives her passion for glass. Her technical skills were developed using historical methods, but her more recent works utilize methods developed by Tiffany. Cheryl’s love for the natural world can be seen and felt through her work. She utilizes glass, agates, stones, shells, and numerous other articles wrapped in the Tiffany method. Her process has evolved from the traditional to the modern. She loves how the interaction between glass and light explodes when the right pieces come together. She doesn’t try to make the glass work for her; instead, she lets it dictate the design. Her designs have been featured in the international magazine, “Stained Glass News.” Sneak Peek will be Thursday, December 3rd, from 3-5 pm at Fresh Gallery. Exhibition Dates: December 4 – 31
