NORWAY — The Main Street Gallery will feature Sherry Grant as its artist of the month through September at 246 Main St.

Grant taught school for many years and, after retiring in 2016, decided she would try to develop her artistic style, as she comes from a musical and artistic family that goes back for generations. These influences were deeply woven into her teaching and now as an artist, according to a news release from the gallery.

The Norway resident is drawn to bold colors that reflect in her paintings of nature and creatures she’s met in her childhood and beyond. Her animals are often painted with a bit of whimsy and strong elements of color brought out in acrylic, colored pencil or watercolor mediums.

With an eye to detail, she likes to bring the eyes of her creations into focus to try to capture the wild spirit within them. With each painting, she strives to give each creature the respect of its individuality and divinity that they inherently possess.

The Main Street Gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. For more information, find it on Facebook or email [email protected].
