Description:
Cheryl Keefer, a landscape painter of atmospheric mood and luminous color, is Asheville Gallery of Art’s featured artist for March 2015. Her show, "Reflections: Interiors/Landscapes/Cityscapes," which includes new and recent work in oils, invites viewers to transcend time, space, distance, atmosphere, weather, and even the particularity of the image. The artist, who paints from life and travels for inspiration, captures scenes that conjure memories and prompt reflection in even the most casual viewer. "I absorb place or setting in the act of painting," says Keefer. "I truly hope the viewer experiences the awe I experience and goes beyond that to reach his or her own personal moment of epiphany. For this show, I’ve included works inspired by travels in Italy, France, and in our own beloved United States of America." Keefer’s impressionistic oil and watercolor paintings have won awards throughout the country. Her work en plein air includes cityscapes and landscapes from the Appalachian Mountains to the
