You are cordially invited to the reception for Cheryl LeClair-Sommer”s Project Space Exhibition: Scents to Scenes
Cheryl will be pleased to visit with you and talk with you about her new artwork and the back story behind the exhibit.
Plein air artist, Cheryl LeClair-Sommer pairs visual and olfactory stimuli to whisk us off to those romantic little hideaways of Minnesota. Cheryl used fragrance as a catalyst to search for locations that embodied the properties of those scents. This allowed for the characteristics of each perfume to inspire the mood and help predict the color palette of the work. Gallery patrons will have the opportunity to sample the scents associated with each painting to fully appreciate the experience.By pairing essential oils with her expertly painted landscapes, Cheryl hopes to deeply immerse the viewer into the scene and encompass the entirety of the artist’s experience.
