An exhibition in Gallery III, May 31 – July 5, 2024

Artist Reception: Sunday June 2, 2pm-4pm

From May 31 to July 5, Sivarulrasa Gallery is delighted to present Sherry Park: Portraits, a series of figurative works by artist Sherry Park. “When I paint a portrait I want to get to know the person first, which helps with the final piece”, she says. “I paint people that I am familiar with or whom I met briefly. It helps to understand the person.” Painting in a naturalistic style, Sherry Park’s portraits offer a glimpse into her subjects’ lives. The artist creates evocative compositions, playing with light and bringing her characters to life against vibrant backdrops.

Born in South Korea, Sherry Park’s studio is based in Alton, Ontario. She graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD), majoring in Fine Art, and spent her fourth year in an off-campus program in Florence, Italy. Her works have been shown in exhibitions in Canada and internationally. She is the winner of several awards, including the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant, and the Mary Pratt Crystal Award from the Society of Canadian Artists.

Artist Reception: Sunday June 2, 2pm-4pm. Artist Sherry Park will be in attendance.
