Cherie Fruehan: Faces opens April 20 at the Blue House Too

facesbluehouse

The Allen Arts Alliance and Blue House Too welcome emerging artist, Cherie Fruehan, with her exhibit, Faces. The exhibit explores the familiar subject of the human face, and takes it to unexpected places, through application of color and the manipulation of mediums, creating both recognizable subjects and completely abstract interpretations.

Ms. Fruehan is best known for her distinctive bold faces conveyed through various mediums including oils, acrylics and resins applied to canvas, wood and Lucite. She is primarily self-taught, and her work lends itself to a synthesis of Neo-Expressionism and Pop Art, frequently altering a recognizable subject into something unique by utilizing vivid colors, or by completely distorting the form into an abstract interpretation.

A “pop-up” shop featuring jewelry designed and handcrafted by Ms. Fruehan will be introduced during the exhibit.  This is a new concept at Blue House Too that will  occasionally “pop-up “and feature local artisan’s smaller scale, handcrafted items, as well as other arts-related wares.

Ms. Fruehan is a self-proclaimed ‘recovering perfectionist’, who applies imperfect processes to achieve her desired result; a satisfying fusion of color and emotion expressed through her art.

She earned a BFA in Interior Design from Marywood University in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and her work has been featured on the cover and inside the pages of MENSA magazine.To see more of her work visit  www.essentialrockstar.com

There will be an opening reception for the artist, open to the public, Thursday, April 20, 2017, from 6 pm to 8 pm

Friday, April 21, 2017- Sunday, May 7, 2017
