BY BARBARA M. TOBIAS –
In March, the featured exhibit at Mena Art Gallery, 607 Mena Street, is the work of Cherri Stanberry, longtime member of the gallery.
Cherri will be showing work in paper maché, polymer clay, crochet, and a few acrylics on canvas. Her artwork is always imaginative and original; much of it showcases her love for animals. Since Cherri is legally blind, she has lost her ability to do many things. But she says, “If you concentrate on the things you can still do, you don’t have time to think about the things you can’t. I would like to show people that you can do things despite limitations. I find if you approach everything with a sense of humor, even if the project doesn’t turn out you still have a really good day.”
The show will be on display from March 3 through March 30 during regular gallery hours: 11 am to 2 pm on Tuesdays; 10 am to 3 pm Wednesdays through Saturdays.
There will be a reception from 1 to 3 pm on Saturday, March 5. Admission is free.
