The Students and the Artist:
'Bishop's Through the Decades' was a two part project for me.  While I planned and painted twenty artworks over the last year, I also had the opportunity to demonstrate for over 60 Liberal Arts Students during the Fall 2014 semester.  It was a fantastic experience.  From the days I spent with the students, 20 chose to create the artworks for the event on March 24.

Visiting Artist  (as posted on The Bishop's School Alumni website)
    A La Jollan since 1969, Cherry is passionate about painting. A multitalented artist and instructor in oils and watercolors Cherry focuses on color and light patterns in the French impressionist technique of ‘En plein air’ as well as larger in-studio works. Her portfolio ranges from U.S. National Parks to international travel to the California coastline and The Bishop’s School campus. Notable exhibits include the Smithsonian Museum and The Alliance Francaise and her collectors are worldwide. Cherry credits her artistic achievements to the invaluable years at Bishop’s and her mentor and art history teacher Dr. Otto Mower, who instilled a love of art and a spirit of world travel. Cherry’s artworks are dedicated to Dr. Mower and the proceeds from the art sales will be donated to the Otto A. Mower Chair for the Teaching of the Humanities at Bishop’s.
