Sheri DeBow: Springtime in Mourning

Exhibition Dates: March 9–30, 2019
Opening Reception: Saturday, March 9, 6 pm–9 pm

Modern Eden Gallery proudly presents Springtime in Mourning an exciting new solo exhibition from gallery artist Sheri DeBow. This exhibition marks the artist's fourth major solo at the gallery and we are excited to present a brand new body of work from the Napa-based artist.

This new series is inspired by Springtime rain. Using rain as a metaphor for the tears of mourning and loss, DeBow shows how the sorrows of life are the means to develop life's "flowers" or happier and sweeter times.

Sheri DeBow creates emotive and intricate dolls and sculptures from clay and various mixed media materials. Never using molds or taking shortcuts, each piece is a unique result of meticulous creation. As a student, she worked and studied under sculptor Franco Vianello, Phil Cornelius, Michael Maday, Professor Sakaguchi, Richard Carter and Sensei Kusakabe. She now works as a full-time artist and mom to five children in California’s Napa Valley. Sheri DeBow’s work has been published in Art Doll Quarterly, Beautiful Bizarre Magazine, and PolymerCAFÉ Magazine. Her dolls were also featured characters on NBC’s show, Grimm.
