The Gallery at Queen’s Park presents:

Sherida Charles – “Transits & Reveries” 

Exhibition Dates: July 1st – 31st, 2022

Gallery Hours: Wednesday – Sunday, 10:00am – 2:00pm

Free Admission

Exhibition Statement

My recent mixed media works and acrylic on canvas paintings revolve around the realities of living and moving through an urban space. A space filled with signs, bold colour and shapes, and fleeting glimpses of incongruous imagery. There are short stints on transit and passing glances at street scenes, neon, plant displays in storefronts, leaf shapes in gardens, and the layered effect of multiple impressions in rapid succession.

The scenes on transit are reflective of quick sketches to capture compositions, with the linear, primary coloured compositions recalling Mondrian for me. Depending on the daylight hour aboard the train, the shadows shift and create strong shapes. The scene and occupants constantly change in an endlessly varied, multicultural diorama. The environment of the train and buses also serves as a common denominator of humanity and represents the essence of our urban population. The colours and lines and shapes also represent an increasing concern I have with simplification and abstraction.  

Artist Biography

I was born in Kingston, Jamaica in 1964, and emigrated to Canada in 1976, settling in New Westminster. I attended high school in Burnaby and studied Fine Arts at the University of British Columbia. During my 20’s, I practiced as a painter, won a year of post-grad study at the Banff Centre, and was awarded a Canada Council grant in 1988 to take my paintings to Jamaica for an exhibit. Later, I decided to pursue Art Education to secure regular employment in Canada, attaining my B. Ed Degree in 1991. I have been teaching Art at the Secondary level in the Coquitlam School District since 1992, and recently left teaching to focus on my own art practice. I live in the west end of New Westminster with my husband and sons. In 2019 I joined a Studio Residency in Vancouver called Printermedia, an extension of Malaspina Printmakers, where I am able to focus on printmaking with facilities and equipment, as well as other collaborative artists. Here I have been able to immerse myself in developing and practicing my skills with multicolour reduction linocuts, and also continue exploring silkscreen processes and mixed media painting in traditional and experimental works.

In partnership with New Westminster Secondary School

As a member of the NWSS Senior Jazz Band, Vocal Jazz, and Chamber Choir, Elena has become well-versed in many musical styles. Early in high school, she was selected for a department award by her choir director due to her discipline, skill, and dedication to the program. She was also a cast member in the NWSS production of Beauty and the Beast, as well as the musical revue What Is Love?

In addition to her participation in the NWSS music program, she has taken private lessons in violin, guitar, and voice from a very young age. She represented NWSS in the BCMEA Honour Concert Choir, where she collaborated with top youth choral singers, and worked with one of Canada’s best choral directors to learn and perform challenging vocal arrangements.

As an IB student, Elena has always challenged herself academically. She has consistently made an effort to empower her peers to enact positive change within NWSS. In order to showcase literary talent and build connections within such a huge school, she founded a student newspaper, and has been working as its Editor-in-Chief for the past three years. She will also be representing her graduating class as the Valedictorian.

Elena currently holds a teaching position at Kabok Music School, where she teaches classical voice technique to beginner students. Her musical knowledge will play an integral role in the field that she aims to pursue, which is to practice as a speech-language pathologist.

EXHIBITION STATEMENT

The 2022 Graduating Students of New Westminster have worked hard to bring together their best work for their fourth Grad Show. The show includes all manner of creation: ink drawing, painting, sculpture, and photography. These artists are excited to launch themselves into the big world and land in a way that honours their high school life. As you wander through the gallery of images and sculpture you will see yourself mirrored in their youth and proudly imagine the strength of our community’s future.

We hope you enjoy this exhibition.
