Studio M Archive 2014: Sherri Hornbrook

Sherri Hornbrook
Standstill, 
Acrylic

Opening reception: Friday, January 17 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.

The Acrylic Paintings of Sherri Hornbrook will open in the Massillon Museum’s Studio M.  The opening reception is free and open to everyone with no reservations required.
 
Sherri Hornbrook, a native of Western Stark County, says the paintings in the exhibition represent her latest work.  “They are abstract paintings based upon found, recycled, and carefully selected objects as well as conversational exchanges with folks.”  She believes this body of work will allow the novice to talk about the painting from his individual point of view.  He will be able to identify or recognize specific things in each painting.
 
After graduating from Tuslaw High School, the artist earned a BA in art education and an MA in painting from Kent State University.  She first taught art at all levels in Tuslaw Local Schools and adult classes at the Canton Museum of Art.  Later in Massillon City Schools, she started as a traveling subject area specialist at the elementary level and closed her teaching career at Washington High School.
 
Hornbrook’s paintings have recently been selected for exhibition in the Massillon Museum’s 2012 Stark County Artists Exhibition; the Stark Realities show at Kent State University Stark; and the North Canton Little Art Gallery’s 2013 May Show, where her painting, Quest, earned “Best of Show.”
 
This summer Hornbrook exhibited and sold her work at ArtisAlive: Massillon at the Massillon Museum and at the Navarre Village Art Fest on Rochester Square.
 
While at the Museum, guests may also see three second-floor exhibitions which will close soon:  Artifacts of Faith: Religious Objects from the Permanent Collection, Documenting American Prosperity: Photographs from the Independent, 1947–1950, and Massillon and the War of the Rebellion: The Regiments of Camp Massillon.  Other exhibitions that can be seen during the Studio M opening include:  A Century of Service: Massillon Community Hospital School of Nursing, The Immel Circus, and Paul Brown: The Ohio State Years.

Immediately following the Hornbrook opening, at 8:10 p.m., a documentary film, The Vivian Maier Mystery, will be screened in The Immel Circus Gallery.  The recently discovered large body of photographs by Maier (1926–2009) has elevated her to the ranks of the great American street photographers.  Shown in cooperation with the Cleveland Print Room, viewing the 50-minute film is free and open to the public with no reservations.
 
Studio M enhances the collaboration between the Museum and the community by showcasing the artistic talents of local, regional, and national artists.  The series of five-week shows will continue throughout the year, selected by jurors from proposals submitted by artists.  Brochures containing guidelines and an application are available by contacting the Massillon Museum at 330-833-4061 or www.massillonmuseum.org.

 

The exhibition may be seen in the Fred F. Silk Community Room through January 5, 2014 during regular Museum hours, Tuesday through Saturday 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday 2:00 to 5:00 p.m.
