Meeting new friends is always fun. Meeting a new friend like Allison Sprock . . . enlightening. A mutual (and dear) friend of ours recently introduced us, and we have had nothing but fun ever since. Allison has an extensive background in the arts that includes time spent in New York City, Atlanta, Charleston, SC and San Fransisco. Presently in Charlotte, North Carolina, her gallery, Allison Sprock Fine Art, is committed to raising an awareness of local established and emerging artists; and to bringing a European sophistication to the Queen City.
Tuesday night, Allison hosted the opening reception for established artist Cher Cosper at her Myers Park Gallery. Cher's work is truly as fun, bright, loud and lovely as she is. While often understated, closer examinations of her work reveal symbols of Christianity and love.

Cher's eclectic and modern style is evident in the following painting entitled Double Pink.
Double Pink 16 x 20 $1000
While Tuesday evening was spent showcasing Cher Cosper, the gallery itself is full of artwork from American and European artists.

In attendance Tuesday evening was local artist Marcy Gregg. The recipient of the prestigious 2013 Art With Heart's Emerging Artist Award. Overcoming "incredible odds" in 2006, Marcy committed herself to her "true passion, art." Her artwork explores natural form, color and texture.

The gallery has a substantial collection of available artwork by southern artist Gee Gee Collins. Gee Gee's work includes one of my personal favorite's.

While potentially spoken for, the modern expressionist nude (shown above) would be a welcome addition to our collection.
