Asheville Gallery of Art in Asheville, NC, Offers Works by Cheryl Keefer

The Asheville Gallery of Art in Asheville, NC, will present Recent Works, by Cheryl Keefer, on view from July 1 - 31, 2013. A reception will be held on July 5, from 5-8pm.

The exhibition features oil paintings with vivid colors of reflected light in wet pavement, contrasted by rainy-day grays.

Inspired by the southern genre of her heritage and her old friends, Rembrandt, Sargent and Monet, Keefer paints on location/from life. “Painting simply verifies my God-given co-existence with man and nature.”

The daughter of a legacy of Alabama teachers, preachers and farmers, Keefer became mindful of the joy of simple pleasures. Her appreciation for the land and its beauty has been reflected in her art since the age of 13, leading her to study art formally. She received a degree in Art Education from Jacksonville State University, a Masters in Art History from the University of Alabama, Birmingham, and graduate painting from Virginia Commonwealth University. Her work has garnered many awards and she is a teacher of plein air painting in both watercolor and oil.

Keefer is a member of the Western North Carolina Plein Air Painters, and the Portrait Society of America. She is often found painting in the streams, on the parkway, and by the mountain lakes of the region that is her home.
