Dorothea Cheney is one of 40 professional artists opening her studio to visitors during the 7th Annual Wood River Valley Studio Tour, August 17-18.
Cheney describes herself as a contemporary realist and a symbolist painter as she incorporates objects into her ethereal paintings and in doing so engages an emotional connection with the viewer. “In the process of creating each piece, I expose emotions and thoughts that deserve attention and recognition and resolution. She explains, “the resolution is a letting go. In the quiet, counting heartbeats, I listen to the stories I tell myself and breathe – surrender.”
