New Art Exhibit at Unleashed Arts Center

204 West 6th Street, Downtown Winston-Salem Arts District

Introducing AFAS Artist - Cheryl Davis
"Intuitive Images - A Collection of Connections 2" - Acrylic on Canvas

Opening Night - January 2nd - First Friday Gallery Hop from 7-10 PM
Unleashed Arts Center

Exhibit will run from January 2 to January 31

This collection of work by Cheryl Davis reveals the consciousness behind the face in a figurative, narrative style exposing feelings and emotions experienced by everyone. Much of this work delves into relationship/connections to self, each other, our environment and the cosmos, suggesting our tentative hold on reality. "I hope my work changes, if momentarily, the brain chemistry of the viewer in a connection, a recognition, a laugh-out-loud moment that he/she would not have gotten any other way."
