Mixed media by Carol Staub and acrylic paintings by Cheri Cruden
Gallery 14 is happy to present an exhibit featuring Cheri Cruden and Carol Staub, two artists with long standing ties to the Gallery. Carol who is represented by Gallery 14 year round is being given a special expanded showing of her work. An international star in the field of mixed media, Carol has won an astonishing number of awards for her work, including most recently, the Holbein Award in the California Watercolor Association’s 47th Annual National Exhibition and First Place in Acrylic, at Art by the Sea in Vero Beach. A former owner-artist at Gallery 14, Cheri’s acrylics and mixed media work include abstract as well as representational images done in a bold, large, distinctive style. Commissioned by Scoozi in the Arts District, her striking vegetable paintings create dramatic ambiance in the main dining room, where they adorn the walls.
