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.
