work by Sherri Westergreen

Sherri Westergreen, a longtime Laurelhurst resident, who has been a contemporary, visual and abstract artist for over 20 years, painting, is having an art show on Saturday from 11-5pm at 4721 47th Avenue NE.

Sheryl works out of her home and her work has been used on the sets of television's The Good Wife and The Apprentice. She also has been shown is in private and corporate collections nationally, locally at the Seattle Art Museum Gallery, as well as internationally.  

Sheryl told us that "draws inspiration from her immediate surroundings as well as her experiences as a traveler."

She added:
My work explores geometric form as it applies to architecture, landscape and the human figure. I translate a memory of a place or an experience through the process of abstraction. By observation, contemplation, and repeated layering of paint, the canvas begins to reveal its particular shapes, lines and textures. The paintings are an exploration of color and geometric form as well as an attempt to suggest a feeling or nuance that is not cut off from the psyche and alludes to hidden affinities and elusive qualities.
