The Professional Artists Gallery of St. Augustine (PAStA) will host new coil and hand-built pottery by member artist Sheryl Sherwood during the month of May from Friday Art Walk, May 5th, through the end of the month.

The Professional Artists of St. Augustine (PAStA) Fine Art Gallery, of 214 Charlotte Street, St. Augustine, will host Sheryl Sherwood’s new hand-built pottery during First Friday Art Walk, May 5th, 5 pm – 9 pm, and ongoing during the month of May. Sheryl’s unique clay vessels and sculptures are individually made using coils during the handbuilding. Incorporating a variety of textures, each piece is not only a visual work of art, but a tactile experience, as well.

A life-long artist, with a grounding in drawing and painting, Sheryl has been involved in visual arts over the course of her adult life. Over a decade ago, she found clay to be her passion. All of her unique designs are hand-coiled, and combine her love of scripture, work and life experiences. Each piece is inscribed with a scripture reference. Due to Sheryl’s teaching experience with blind and visually impaired children, she uses natural and recyclable materials to make textures and carvings that allow people to experience the art with their hands. She uses a variety of firing methods, such as Raku, pit firing and saggar firing to achieve interesting coloring on each piece. Sheryl’s goal is that every pottery piece remains in its most organic form, while including movement, texture, and carvings for visual and tactile appeal.

“I am looking forward to seeing everyone and meeting new people on May 5th. I would love to introduce our other member artists, as well. Friday Art Walk is a great opportunity to meet most of our gallery’s artists in one festive event,” Sheryl explained. “Additionally, we’ll have the great sounds of our feature band, the Flajberries Jam at our gallery.”
