Cheryl Anne Grace

Artist + Cheryl Anne Grace

Moving to New Orleans on my own in 2009 finally gave me the time and space I needed to endlessly paint.  I never run out of inspiration in this vibrant and magical city that enraptures  me with its deep, rich history, cherished architecture, music that begs you to stop and listen, colorful neighborhoods, mystery, and eccentric characters.  I paint for people with soul!  I paint New Orleans, points beyond, and imaginary places. I grew up very much alone, an only child, with a mother who was mostly absent, physically and emotionally.  My imagination was such an integral part of my childhood and created the wonderful solitary world in which I lived. That gift has carried through to my adult life and fed my need to create. I am a self taught artist and I spend as much time researching and studying art as I do painting it. Traveling always includes visits to the great art museums of the world.

My work is done in the studio,  from photos I take constantly while making my way around town, preferring the path less traveled, and from compositions that I create in my imagination.  The iconic musicians and culture bearers paintings are created from extensive research and by using as many as 20 images to uniquely portray each one.  My work is in private collections across the country, Puerto Rico, Scotland, and the permanent public collection of the LSU Health Sciences Center and most recently, the new Eliza Jane Boutique Hotel restaurant, Couvant.  I was selected for the 2017 Bywater Biennial exhibition curated by Don Marshall, a Prospect 4 Satellite exhibit, as well as a Prospect 4 Satellite exhibit curated by Where Y'art. My work has also been selected and shown by the New Orleans Arts Council and featured on the cover and inside front page of the 2018 April quarterly issue of "The Iron Lattice," an arts and culture magazine.  I have regularly exhibited for the past 6 years as a featured artist at Ariodante Gallery in the Arts District of New Orleans, but am currently not affiliated with a gallery.  I also show my work at exhibits curated by Where Y'art for public spaces and local galleries.

I do not create art to match the sofa!  My intention is that  you experience joy, amusement, sentimentality, some lesser known places in New Orleans, a few points beyond, and the places that are born in my imagination.

Commissions welcome!
