Sky Exhibition Opens Tonight

Today is the day!  My soloshow “Sky” opens at 7pm tonight Corey Helford Gallery in  Los Angeles! It took me over a year to create this collection of paintings and drawings. This is my most diverse showing to date. This exhibition represents who I am as a person and as an artist. I want my art to be my voice of unity and acceptance. I believe we all deserve to be treated equally regardless of our skin tone, our sexuality, where we come from or our shape. Whether you have pale skin, vitiligo, freckles or curves, I hope to empower people and to show the world that we should love each other’s uniqueness!

This show is a culmination of many sleepless nights, and both tears and joy, so I can’t wait for you to see it! I’ve poured my heart and soul into this art! If you can’t make it to the opening don’t fret! You can email sherri@coreyhelfordgallery.com to inquire available originals from my show.

I wish you all the love in my heart! Sending my love and squishes from here in Chicago! You can check out my solo show video on YouTube Here!
