Piedmont hosts artwork of Sheryl Haler

By Staff
DEMOREST - The installation art of Florida sculptor Sheryl Haler is now on display at the Mason-Scharfenstein Museum of Art at Piedmont College and includes a half dozen large installations that transform the space into a slightly off-kilter natural history museum.

Each of the pieces begins with an animal form that is then "altered and carved before being covered with layers of cloth as skin," she said. "Nature, myth, place and community are recurrent themes in my work. I want the viewers to weave their own thoughts and experiences into the interpretation of the art and then extend the conversation into a reflective contemplation with self."

The works at the Piedmont show primarily use cloth, a medium Haler said she enjoys for its "wondrous mix of history and technology, nature and human hand, as well as [representing] the symbolic and the utilitarian.
