Aunt Helen’s Doll III will be one of the three images appearing in the Katonah Museum Artists’ Association Artist of the Month online gallery, which will feature Sherry Camhy during November and December 2014.
“Aunt Helen’s Doll III was painted directly on an old wooden panel rescued from the basement of the Art Students League of New York,” explains Sherry Camhy. “Since the league’s founding in 1875, generations of art students have used old boards like this one as a support behind their paintings. When they removed their work, the boards were reused, again and again, by a new crop of artists. Now, it is my turn. Will you be next?”
