Sherry Camhy’s Silverpoint Portrait at the Lyme Art Association Gallery

Sherry Camhy’s silverpoint portrait, Olivia, will be on view from June 15 to June 23 at the Lyme Art Association Gallery as part of the Hudson Valley Artists Association’s 85th Annual Juried Exhibition. For this portrait Camhy chose to draw with both sterling and Austrian silver on a specially prepared surface that facilitates the visibility of the precious metals. Over time, the two silvers will begin to tarnish, one becoming a warmer tone, the other a cooler tone. So although Olivia was completed last month, it remains, like all silverpoint images, a work in progress.
