Fresh Gallery presents two featured artists in August!  Abstract painter Rebecca Lewis Smith and glass artist 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. Much of what Rebecca does in the studio is deeply influenced by both modern and ancient art, and she revels at exploring any and all art museums. A lifelong Missouri resident, the artist 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. It was her love for the medium and the way the light danced through it on which her passion was built. Her technical skills were developed using historical methods, but her more recent works utilize methods developed by Tiffany.

Her process has evolved from the traditional to the modern. She doesn’t try to make the glass work for her, instead she lets it dictate the piece and design.  Her designs are featured in the September issue of the international magazine, Stained Glass News.

 

Rebecca and Cheryl will be hosting two receptions in August at Fresh Gallery, 400 W Walnut Street. Preview Opening Wine & Appetizer Reception will be Thursday, August 1st from 5-7pm and 2nd Saturday Art Walk August 10th from 2-4pm.  Their reception on August 10th will feature complimentary limousine service from the Springfield Art Museum beginning at 1:45.
