Hand-turned Pine Vessels with Turquoise Inlay by Robert Cherry, sizes range from 4" to 20" highSculpted Nature: The Art of Hans Schiebold & Robert Cherry

Artist Reception Friday Evening,
May 2, 2014, 5-8 pm

Prominent artists are the focus in May as Lanning Gallery opens its newest exhibition with both Hans Schiebold and Robert Cherry travelling to Arizona for the exhibition's opening reception.

Hans Schiebold's vision and the singular technique used to create his sculptural landscape paintings of heightened realism have secured him a listing in the "Who's Who in American Art." Schiebold uses his own acrylic-based mixed media and unconventional tools: palette knives, spatulas, hand-shaped metal tools, sponges, nets, patterned rollers, anything that will create the pattern or texture he desires. His representational style continues to carry the influence of his early abstract paintings: Schiebold was active in the New York abstract art scene of the 1970s when his paintings were displayed in major museums and featured in international museum shows. His current work viewed closely shows these abstract roots while when viewed from afar geological scenes unfold in all their depth and glory.

Robert Cherry describes his artistic path as working with wood while also producing something different and new. To that end he succeeds with every vessel he creates. Cherry uses only downed pine and selects his "blanks" for their character, their natural defects, splits and cracks. Eventually these will be inlaid with turquoise or other accents. Once Cherry has roughed out each vessel it is left to dry to a precise moisture content before the final shape is given to the vessel. A tool of his own making allows him to work at his remarkable interiors through only small top openings before applying subtle to near opaque colors to each vessel and working in his inlay. Layers of expertly added resin finishes each piece and gives each Cherry vessel its signature glass-like surface.

These are two artists whose personal innovation has allowed them to express their very individual artistry with undeniable success. Stop in on 1st Friday and meet Hans Schiebold and Robert Cherry; hear more about their skills and vision and enjoy a terrific springtime arts reception. Exhibition through May 11th.
