11/2011: Artwork to be Displayed and Gifted at the American Music Awards

Local muralist and artist, Sheryl Chatterton, has been invited to showcase her artwork in Hollywood, CA at the American Music Awards. For the Awards, Sheryl created a hand glazed tile mural comprised of 100 2” tiles.  The theme of the mural is “Music is Life”. Each individual tile was then turned into a magnet that symbolically represents one note of a whole composition. These magnets, along with a picture of the completed mural will be included in the swag bags for the event taking place Nov 18-19 and culminating with the awards show on Nov. 20.

One of Sheryl’s small encaustic paintings of local independent musician, Tim Cannon, will be displayed at the Awards as well by The IndiExhibit, a company that promotes independent artists from around the world

“Music is Life” is a 100 piece tile mural. Each of the 2” tiles was turned into a magnet that gives it’s owner an integral part of the Greater Whole, symbolizing the importance of every note ever sung or played as it resounds and melds with the world around us.”
