Cheryl Ehlers at OCS Art Walk, OCT 4 - HERITAGE EXHIBITION

The Brooks Theater Gallery offers a unique collaboration of visual art for the playgoer and live theater performance art for the art lover! 

October 4 – Oceanside First Friday Art Walk, 5-9 pm 

Cheryl Ehlers and members of the Sargent Art Group will be presenting art unique to the Appalachian culture which coincides with the Oceanside Theater Company’s production, Foxfire, set in the mountains of the Appalachians, the production is an anthology of wisdom and simplistic lifestyles. Much of the fascinating Appalachian lore woven into the play is drawn from the famous Foxfire books, the outgrowth of a north Georgia high school project in the ’60s that helped keep Appalachian culture and tradition alive through oral history. There’s bluegrass music with fiddle and banjo and dulcimer, the sweetness of homemade jams and jellies, brilliant quilts and handmade baskets and wooden toys. The old traditions of spinning, blacksmithing, and woodworking are as important as the traditions, folktales, and superstitions of growing up, courting, birthing, and dying. What is the price of Heritage?

Ehlers, paintings Last of the Granny Witches and Blue Mountain Music will be on exhibit at the Oceanside Art Walk and Brooks Theater Gallery from October 4 – 30, 2019. One must be intrigued by the art piece “Last of the Granny Witches”. These are a peculiar breed. Their roots grow deeper than the cedars, and yet they don’t know precisely where or who it is that we grew from. They are a mystery as old as the hills themselves, and it doesn’t take much figuring to know that they are enigmas of intentional design and destiny. These are magic women, healers of wounds, tellers of fortunes and hex casters who never considered themselves anything but noble, proud and God-fearing, The blood in their veins is laced with old magic and the secrets of the noble servants before them. Myself, growing up around many cultures, steeped in numerous folk traditions, I feel somehow connected - linked to them. I learned young, how to connect with one’s emotions, passions, and joys of past and present life’s experiences, and embody them in my art. It has made me what I am today, a survivor, healer and a visionary.

Ehlers is .an accomplished and award winning artist. She participates with many art organizations worldwide that reach out to educate communities on the values of art. In 2009 Ehlers founded The Stardust Arts, a youth art program serving underserved children that obtained recognition from the California State Assembly and the San Diego County Board of Supervisors for her contributions to the art community. She uses her talents to make a difference in the lives of those around her. "Doing what I love, and touching lives is magical and very rewarding," expressed Cheryl. www.cherylehlersart.com.

A Special Art Reception, June 1, 2019, Hypnotic Movements; Chasing Coral

On June 1, local artist, Cheryl Ehlers will collaborate with The Ocean Agency and Exposure Film Labs to present an evening filled with coral and ocean themed art along with. a viewing of the Netflix film, Chasing Coral, at the upcoming Art Night hosted by the City of Encinitas. The event will be located at the Encinitas Community Center, 1140 Oakcrest Park Dr, Encinitas, 6-9 p.m.

Ehlers is supporting through her art, to bring awareness and spread the word about the coral reef crisis. Currently, an unprecedented 23%, have died-off in the world's largest reef, the Great Barrier Reef. World-wide, the percentage is mounting and has been destroyed by climate change. Come learn more, and assist in bringing, into the forefront, the importance of our living reefs.

Exposure Film Labs creates films and brings campaigns that change the world. Their worldwide film work is comprehensive and educational. “The introduction of art is a wonderful medium to peek public interest, and we are all excited about this opportunity “, stated Exposure Film Labs.

The Ocean Agency aims to be different. “There are more than enough ocean science and conservation organizations out there... there just isn't enough support and investment for the critical work they do. Instead their mission is to be a catalyst for ocean conservation, using the powerful combination of new technology, media, and above all creativity to help support ocean conservation as a whole. “We are honored to provide support to Cheryl Ehlers, who is so dedicated to our cause. It is individuals like herself that make a difference”, stated Michelle of The Ocean Agency in Georgia.

Ehlers is a published artist whose artworks are bold, colorful, and expressionist, filled with

emotion and movement. Motivated by watching the video, Chasing Coral, she began a one and half year journey of painting in support of the crisis. “At first, I was merely fascinated by the rainbow colors of coral reefs, and how they re-develop. It took my breath away, and then the reality sunk in, and was taken over by sadness as I watched coral dying. With these thoughts in my mind, the paintings took on a life of their own, and are filled with animals, creatures, and colors of coral and sea. You need to look deep inside the art to seek what is not seen at first glance., much like reef life. I found hope for the future of coral”. View the trailer on YouTube https://youtu.be/DRsUWSgad2s

Presently, Ehlers is the Art Program Assistant for the City of Encinitas, and curates three galleries, in addition to curating for Jazzercise, Inc., Carlsbad.
