Summerland Art Gallery Show

Tomorrow I take the pictures down to Summerland to hang in the one woman show. Opening reception is September 28th from 7 until 9 pm. The Arts Council is doing a great deal of the work and I am very appreciative. Getting the Bean Scene North show hung, preparing for both Summerland and for Art Walk in Winfield has been very “crowded” in my day.

I hope a lot of people come out to see the new work in Summerland. I have been preparing for six months to have the images the way I imagined them.

Upcoming exhibits and monthly art crawl

There are a lot of things happening in my life. Art shows are coming up. Pieces are selling. I am moving into the multi-media, non representational, abstract geometric realm with gusto. Several years of secretly working these images has given me the confidence to start putting them out there. The images originate from my childhood when I would close my eyes when hearing music and see shapes and colors dancing. Now they dance for all to see.







You are invited to the following local exhibits by artist Cherie Hanson, Studio 205.


From April until October the Artists@Work group invites the public to the First Thursday Art Crawl at the Rotary Centre for the Arts, 421 Cawston Avenue, Kelowna, B.C. from 4 pm until 7 pm the first Thursday of each of the six months from April until October. Free Food, music and a chance to visit with the participating artists makes this a must-attend event.


July 1, 7 pm to 8:30 pm Opening reception for “Retrospective: A Second Life,” one woman show in Rotary Centre for the Arts Galleria and Atrium, 421 Cawston Avenue, Kelowna, B.C.


August 28 – September 27,Study in Transposition,” multi-media/digital abstract art. Summerland Art Gallery, 9533 Main Street, Summerland. B.C. The gallery is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday 10:00 am – 4 pm. Sunday from 1:00 pm – 4 pm. Opening reception to be announced.
The definition for Abstract art is art that departs significantly from natural appearances. Forms are modified or changed to varying degrees in order to emphasize certain qualities or content. Recognizable references to original appearances may be slight. The term is also used to describe art that is nonrepresentational. Artist Cherie Hanson begins with a photograph that holds meaning for her and abstracts it. The resulting image is bold, colorful and visually intense. Foreground, mid ground and background shifts as well as movement on the surface of the image create images which “dance on canvas”.


September, 2008, Bean Scene North, “Rivers of Europe,” Giclee/multi-media photography of the artist’s visit to Florence, Rome, London and Paris. A series of large images taken in winter 2007 of the Seine, Arno, Tiber and Thames.
