Water As Interconnection

Water As Interconnection


Interdisciplinary artist and WSG Advisory Board Member Cheryl Edwards’ exhibition, The Reverence of Water and Its Relationship to Identity, was on view at Craddock-Terry Gallery at Riverviews Artspace in Lynchburg, VA, January 4 through February 15, 2019. Despite the 4-hour drive, it drew a large crowd from the DC area for the show’s opening night. Edwards beamed as she welcomed the community of friends, curators, and acquaintances who made the long trek down the Route 29 Corridor to Lynchburg.

Prism Vii

For the seventh summer, Cheryl D. Edwards has turned her Brookland studio into a gallery for a show in her series “Prism.” This year’s subtitle is “Beginnings.” The five artists, who include Edwards, treat the theme in ways that range from personal to environmental.

Photographer and photo-collagist Gregory Staley flags moments in his family’s history, incorporating pictures of his maternal relatives from a century ago. Jase Clark’s prints achieve metaphorical and literal depth, in part by overlapping images on layers of clear plastic. Elsabe Johnson Dixon enlarges simple forms inspired by beehives, here wall-mounted or suspended from the ceiling, to highlight natural phenomena and humans’ oft-ignored place amid them.

Painter Brooke Marcy expresses similar concerns in self-portraits that meld her face (or a single eye, in one case) with those of various animals. The ink-stained expanses of Edwards’s work also suggest nature, perhaps at the cosmic or...

Go With The Flow

Go With The Flow

With their gentle yellow lights and eerie glow, the four light boxes have a cosmic air about them, the images inside reminiscent of snapshots telescopes have captured of the moon or even Mars.

It’s this fuzzy familiarity that makes it all the more startling when the creator of this luminescent installation, D.C. artist Cheryl D. Edwards, reveals the images are of a very earthly origin.

“I started with these microscopic images of saliva,” says Edwards as she points out the differences in the samples. They each come from a different source — two men and two women, one of whom is white and the other black.

Artists Against Gun Violence

Washington Post: In the galleries: A visual rallying cry against gun violence
By Mark Jenkins March 30, 2018
After the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary, Charles Krause/Reporting Fine Art organized an exhibition on the same theme as this one. The two shows play many of the same notes, although the Petworth array has fewer explicitly political works. It does include Ellen Hill’s small coffin covered in miniature $50 bills and Cheryl Edward’s target, drawn with bullet shells on a painted American flag. Cory Oberndorfer makes a brutal connection between the shapes of two very different objects, wrapping a Teddy bear in a bandoleer outfitted with crayons rather than bullets.

Prism V

Washington Post: Prism V
Although her Brookland studio is primarily a workplace, Cheryl D. Edwards periodically uses it for a group show. “Prism V: Facing Fear in the 21st Century” displays Edwards’s work alongside that of five other women. Most depict the natural world in some way.

Beverly Ress does diligent renderings of biological specimens on paper that is then precisely cut or folded. Mary Higgins’s subjects include trees and flowers, drawn to emphasize their root structures. Eve Hennessa paints colorful geometric puzzles, set on watery backdrops. Isabel Manalo’s seemingly tropical scenes are suffused with white, as if dazed by equatorial sun.

These landscapes “are an expression of angst and confusion,” Manalo writes, which links them to Fabiola Alvarez’s five hanging, birdhouse-like structures, each in one of the colors of the Homeland Security alert system. Edwards addresses fear of the other with photos of microscopic saliva samples from...

Its Tuesday night and Hill resident Cheryl Edwards is busy entertaining at Studio 9. She sits behind a scattered worktable gingerly sipping white wine. Next to a half-empty bottle of wine, remnants of a cheese tray mingle with brushes and a sketchpad, forgotten for the night only to be picked up again tomorrow. The second she hears someone at the entrance, she peers up and offers them a drink. Latin jazz drifts in from the live band playing in the promenade just outside the door. One begins to get the sense this isnt a run of the mill art gallery. In fact, number 9 is one of 27 art studios that make up the Arts Walk at Monroe Street Market, the new artist space that opened last fall across the street from Catholic University. The development was conceived to be different a working studio-gallery combo where artists, as well as their art, are on showcase, free to create and exhibit...
