Town Square Art Gallery in the Carrs Wasilla Mall will be featuring Wasilla artist, Cheryl Lacy, at the Second Saturday Art Show, April 9th from 1-4. Refreshments will be served. Vibrant, whimsical creatures escape from reality and spring into your heart with the painting techniques Cheryl uses. Beaded jewelry and murals sparkle with her artistic endeavors in an unusual twist to traditional beading.
Cheryl Lacy is an acclaimed Alaska Native Silver-Hand artist producing and selling her artwork in Alaska since 2001. Cheryl’s artwork is Native and Alaskan inspired. Her creations have been published in magazines and bead catalogs, have traveled the United States in various art exhibits and been featured in select galleries throughout the state. Cheryl was also awarded a commission in the Alaska 1% for the Arts Program for the Mat Su Career and Technical School.
Cheryl’s enthusiasm is evident as she explains, “I have been drawing and painting all my life. I live, breathe and NEED to draw every day. My art reflects the journey to learn more about myself, where I came from, and introduce people to Alaska Native culture. I love to create stories with personified animals. My animals can get away with a lot of mischief and usually make people chuckle. My favorite mediums are pencil, pen, charcoal, watercolors and acrylics. I also use non-traditional material to make pictures – beads and found objects.”
“I am one of the luckiest people because my work is something that I love to do. To be able to tell stories through artwork, whether it’s my cultural history, fun things to do, or places I’ve been, brings me great joy. I can’t wait to see where this road takes me….”
