The Charleston Artist Guild in Charleston, SC, will present the exhibit, Menagerie, Animals I Have Met, featuring works by Sherri Bardsley in the Charleston Artist Guild Gallery from Mar. 4 - 31, 2011. A reception will be held on Mar. 4, from 5-8pm.

Bardsley originally began her career in law enforcement. After retiring from the Charleston County Sheriffs Office, she quickly took up all of her interests including art. Having studied with Gene Bekaert, Connie Olson, Charles Parnell and Kathleen Wiley, she was able to adapt several techniques to create her own vision. She is an artist whose style concentrates on realism. Bardsley’s rendering skills are exceptional as her subjects seem to come to life. Her skill as an oil painter transform her subjects from life to canvas effortlessly.
