Lots of New Work Hanging Now - March 2011 @ Vastu

New art exhibit featuring Cherie Lester and Emilie Keim


Vastu is pleased to welcome artists Cherie Lester and Emilie Keim.


The recent works of Cherie Lester are inspired by her many years of study of architectural elements. These new abstract paintings are part of her continuing series of textural, mixed media, decollaged works on paper, wood and fabric. Comforting and strong, these pieces offer strength and solidity, with wisps of whimsy.

Emilie Keim works with urban landscape and row-homes of the neighborhoods around her.She is intrigued with painting close-up views of backyards and rooms. Honest paint on board and a blend of reality with abstract style makes her work impressionistic, and comforting. Her color selection is exquisite. This body of work documents the personal spaces, domestic life and privacy within her home city, Philadelphia.

When: January 25 – March 28

Where: Vastu, 1829 14th Street NW, Washington, DC 20009

Photos, Collage Prints & Wood Block Wall Hangings on Etsy for 2011

It's been a while, but I've finally listed a whole bunch of fun new pieces on my Etsy website (link above). Right now, I don't sell my original artwork online but I do sell archival pigment prints of work I used to make - travel photos, collage prints - and for fun, vintage illustrations of flatware and furniture. Some are framed, some are mounted on recycled wood. Fun, inexpensive gifts for anyone! Thanks, Cherie
