Coastal Arts Guild presents Cheri Aldrich at OCCA’s Visual Arts Center
The Coastal Arts Guild (CAG) welcomes Cheri Aldrich to the guild’s October 3rd luncheon, which starts at 11:30 AM in room 202 of the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts’ Visual Arts Center in the Nye Beach Turnaround in Newport.
Aldrich has had the urge to create for most of her life. She is self-taught, intuitive and a multi-media artist who is engaged in a wide variety of media and art techniques from jewelry making, basketry, paper arts, clay work, weaving, macramé, felting, book arts, glass fusion.
Themes of nature and love of rich textures are continuing threads in her art. She collects an intriguing assortment of scavenged items while walking in the woods and fields, the mountains and streams and along the beaches, saying, “The item often ‘tells’ me what to do or what it wants.” Having a wide range of interests and a whole storehouse of techniques available to call on makes each of her creations unique.
CAG holds a luncheon on the first Thursday of each month for members and guests. It is always held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Visual Arts Center. CAG invites those interested in the arts to attend. For additional information and an invitation to attend CAG’s luncheon, call CAG member Linda Anderson at 541-265-5228 or Bobby Flewellyn at 541-563-8548.
