Many Colored Silken Threads, an exhibit exploring the artwork of Jeanne D’Orge with contemporary artists and photographers, opens Friday, July 12th, with an artists’ reception from 5 to 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

The photographers and artists featured in this exhibition have created works that reinterpret and remix elements, themes and the palette of Jeanne D’Orge (Mrs, Carl Cherry), emphasizing the many ways art inspires across time. Their works speak to the expanding diversity of the stories we want to tell and illustrate how today’s artists continue to find inspiration in the methods and pictorial traditions from the Cherry Center’s rich history.

The exhibit will include photographs, paintings, drawings and sculpture by ten area artists displayed alongside select works by Jeanne D’Orge from the Cherry Center’s private collection. Participating artists include Robert Armstrong, Rob Barnard, Jennifer Brook-Kothlow, Tom Davies, Judith Foosaner, Ruth Mayerson Gilbert, William Giles, Richard Murai, Kenneth Parker and Robertson Parkman.

Many Colored Silken Threads can be seen Wednesday through Saturday, noon to 4 p.m. or by appointment through August 17th.
