Cyclones Win!

from Bread & Circuses

Cheryl Brock participated in the Bread and Circuses show in Winter 2015 at Village West Gallery.

"I grew up in Buffalo NY. Before I’d learned to walk, I was trying to draw. Drawing became the way I made sense of the world. It also became the way I internalized abstract ideas like excellence, affectation, discipline, ambition, mediocrity and hypocrisy.

"Now drawing has become my window for seeing how someone else thinks. Is it a surprise that I’ve become a committed draughtsman?

"After classical training at Albright-Knox Art Museum, Carnegie Mellon and Hartford Art School, I graduated from the Philadelphia College of Art (now the University of the Arts). Once in New York City, my range of visual applications expanded: textiles design & garment construction at FIT, television production design at Parsons School of Design (on an ABC-TV scholarship), handbuilding & bas relief at Greenwich House Pottery, plus various seminars at the 92nd St Y. Anatomy studies continue at the Art Students' League, where I've been a Member since 1997. Other affiliations include: NY Artists Equity, Portrait Society of America, Colored Pencil Society of America, the CUE Foundation, MetroOrange Art & The Buffalo Society of Artists."
