Sharlene Cline Gallery Exhibit

Sharlene Cline Gallery Exhibit

  • Homer Council on the Arts (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Sharlene Cline inhales the complicated world around her and responds to it with her art. From distilling nature, like sparrows perched on fireweed, to it essence and Chi (breath of life), to conversing with world issues like tolerance and climate change, she achieves this through layers of Chinese brushwork, decorative paper, and acrylics.

“Our Playground” is Sharlene’s response to climate change deniers. It shows the effects of climate change on our earth’s water, with aerial views on a time spectrum. The title “Our Playground” refers to our view of our world that our planet is only here for our use, our fun, but our playground is beginning to crack.
