Lanning Gallery
“Landscape and Wood:Marshall Noice and Robert Cherry”
October 2nd, 2015 (5:00 pm – 8:00 pm)
Artist Robert CherryThe Lanning Gallery in Sedona, Arizona kicks off its autumn season by welcoming landscape artist Marshall Noice to town and unveiling his newest paintings as well as showcasing the hand-turned wood vessels of artist Robert Cherry. The colorful representations of hills and trees, valleys, rivers and the occasional barn that fill the canvases of Marshall Noice are the joyful epitome of Expressionistic landscapes. Beginning with fallen wood chosen for its desirable “defects,” Robert Cherry roughs out each “blank” then allows each to dry to a 10-15% moisture content before skillfully completing his final shape, a process that involves working interiors through only small top openings. A variety of colorations are added and the natural gaps in the wood are filled with turquoise before each is coated with several layers of carefully applied resin. For more information on this Sedona event please visit the Lanning Gallery.
