Re-emergence, Paintings and Sculpture by Cher Shaffer

Cher Shaffer's work embodies Appalachian experience, yet departs from the conventional expectations of Folk Art in that it is an expression of her Native American, African American and German heritage. This exhibition includes a spectrum of works that range from her early paintings of traditional folk art scenes and a number of richly colored fantasy environments to three-dimensional spirit dolls, which are used as talismans and healing objects. Shaffer’s work has appeared in the publication O, Appalachia: Artists of the Southern Mountains.
