Raised in Wichita, Kansas, and currently living in the Sonoran Desert of north Scottsdale, Arizona, Sherry Blanchard Stuart has been painting most of her life. She works in the traditional style, painting with a richness of color that illuminates the intensity of sunlight upon her varied subject matter. Her work is both traditional and representational in style, and she paints figurative as well as landscape and still life. The majority of her work, however, is Western and equine subjects. The history and tradition of the American West inspires much of her work.
Stuart’s work is in the permanent collections of the Tucson Museum of Art, the Desert Caballeros Western Museum in Wickenburg, Arizona, and the Phippen Museum in Prescott, Arizona, among others. Several of her many awards include the Award of Merit at the American Academy of Women Artists annual show in 2005, Best of Show at the American Plains Artists annual show in 2005 and 2007, and Best of Show at Cowgirl Up! at the Desert Caballeros Western Art Museum in 2008. Her work has been displayed in many juried and solo exhibitions nationwide and can be found in private and corporate collections worldwide. Stuart is constantly refining and developing her unique style. She hopes to continuously grow and broaden her use of light, values and color, and push her work to the next level. Stuart’s work is on view at the 50th annual Contemporary Western Mountain
Oyster Show in Tucson running through January 11.
