Air Sweet Air

The showing of “Air Sweet Air? by Cheryl Wilgren Clyne at the Drake Gallery was particularly thought inspiring. I though the artist did a wonderful job of tying all the pieces together. Although each piece was a separate work, all the pieces were very clearly unified. The display was delightfully nostalgic, invoking fond childhood memories of yesteryear. The vivid colors and incorporation of black and white cutouts was very fitting with the childhood theme. Pieces in this collection were very unique in that they all depicted children with bear heads superimposed onto their bodies. The art specifically does a great job if imposing the question “Why?? I have not come up with an answer, but it did provoke very much meaningful thought into the reason.
