Sunshine, sand and sea are the themes of artworks featuring in the new art gallery, The Beach Seen which opened at Caringbah last weekend.
The gallery features the artworks of Cherie Wilson, a local artist and former teacher who has been studying art techniques and selling art for over 20 years.
It has been her long-time dream to open her own art gallery to show her works.
Cherie’s works reflect on the shire’s beach lifestyle.
She plans to be adding new artwork to the gallery every month.
Cherie has been an educator for more than 30 years in mainstream teaching including experience in special education.
She plans to offer art classes for children and adults in the gallery.
“I love teaching kids art,” Cherie said.
“I think art teaches them creativity and bonding and is important in a child’s growth.”
In the spring the gallery will also be offering "Artsy Parties" which are birthday parties themed by each invitee producing an artwork.
“Additionally we will be offering dress up fairy-themed birthday parties for young children,” Cherie said.
Apart from many years experience teaching art to schoolchildren Cherie has also begun holding art workshops for corporate events and businesses.
The Beach Seen Gallery is located on the corner of President Avenue and Presdient Lane, Caringbah.
