Postcards from Paris, Sherrie Wolf's upcoming exhibition, delves further into images inspired by time spent in Paris in recent years. Wolf continues to experiment with juxtaposing images of historical artwork, often in the form of postcards and art books, with a wide variety of still life subject matter, inspired by her movements through Paris, whether on the street or in the apartment where she stayed. Wolf’s virtuosity with the use of light, shadow, and reflection continues to astound in an array of beautiful images that keep drawing the eye further in.
Sherrie Wolf graduated from the Museum Art School, now the Pacific Northwest College of Art, Portland, OR, in 1974 and received an MA from the Chelsea College of Art in London, England in 1975. She began exhibiting her work in the mid-1970s while teaching art at PNCA. Her work is included in such collections as The Vivian and Gordon Gilkey Center for Graphic Arts, Portland Art Museum; Hallie Ford Museum, Salem, OR; the Tacoma Art Museum, Washington; City of Seattle; and Washington State Art Collection. Wolf has also been included in multiple curated group exhibitions across the country. In 2012, Wolf’s work was presented in a solo exhibition at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, and earlier in 2014 she was featured in a solo show at the Long Beach Museum of Art in Southern California.
