On Tuesday, June 17, at 5:30 pm, Cherri Stanberry will present present a short program on creating sculpture with polymer clay at Mena Art Gallery, 607 Mena Street. Admission is free and the public is invited.
A self-taught artist, Cherri has tended her creative fires for as long as she can remember. She recalls many enjoyable visits with her artistic grandmother, who introduced and nurtured creativity through paper dolls and many other crafts when she was barely five years old. As Cherrie grew taller, her sight grew shorter and dimmer until she could no longer see anything further than one or two inches away from her eyes. But her grandmother insisted that blindness is only an inconvenience—not a tragedy—and exposed her to more advanced crafts such as crocheting, ceramics and more.
Many of you have seen and admired Cherri’s work in polymer clay in the gallery. Come join us on Tuesday evening to find out just how she does it.
You do not have to be a member to attend either Cherri’s presentation or the following short business meeting.
