Emerging artist Cherie Fruehan is best known for her distinctive bold faces conveyed through various mediums including oils, acrylics and resins applied to canvas, wood and lucite. Primarily self taught, Fruehan’s work lends itself to a synthesis of Neo-Expressionism and Pop Art, frequently altering a recognizable subject into something unique by utilizing vivid colors, or by completely distorting the form into an abstract interpretation.
explores the familiar subject of the human face and takes it to unexpected places through application of color and the manipulation of mediums creating both recognizable subjects and completely abstract interpretations
Fruehan is a self-proclaimed recovering perfectionist who implies imperfect processes to achieve her desired result; a satisfying fusion of color and emotion expressed through her art. She earned a BFA in Interior Design from Marywood University in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and her work has been featured on the cover and inside the pages of MENSA magazine.

A “pop-up” shop featuring jewelry designed and handcrafted by Cherie Fruehan will be introduced during the exhibit. This is a new concept at Blue House Too that will occasionally “pop-up “and feature local artisan’s smaller scale, handcrafted items, as well as other arts-related wares.
Meet the artist over a glass of wine and some light refreshments.
