Sheri DeBow: Springtime in Mourning @ Modern Eden Gallery

Those eyes. Those lips. Those beautiful candy-colored curls. Every time I look at one of Sheri DeBow’s beautiful art dolls, I get swept away!!! Like magical little friends you want to eternally embrace, each have a unique story to tell… and I’m ready to hear their sweet secrets.

Join Modern Eden Gallery in the celebration of Springtime in Mourning, a new solo exhibition from gallery artist Sheri DeBow, opening Saturday, March 9th. This exhibition marks her fourth major solo at the gallery!

Press: This new series is inspired by Springtime rain. Using rain as a metaphor for the tears of mourning and loss, DeBow shows how the sorrows of life are the means to develop life’s “flowers” or happier and sweeter times.

Sheri DeBow creates emotive and intricate dolls and sculptures from clay and various mixed media materials. Never using molds or taking shortcuts, each piece is a unique result of meticulous creation. As a student, she worked and studied under sculptor Franco Vianello, Phil Cornelius, Michael Maday, Professor Sakaguchi, Richard Carter and Sensei Kusakabe. She now works as a full-time artist and mom to five children in California’s Napa Valley. Sheri DeBow’s work has been published in Art Doll QuarterlyBeautiful Bizarre Magazine, and PolymerCAFÉ Magazine. Her dolls were also featured characters on NBC’s show, Grimm.
