Showcasing ‘Simple Needs’ -- Gazette.Net


Conceptual artist Ellen Sherfey will be the featured artist for November at the Montgomery Art Association MAA Gallery at the Westfield Wheaton Mall. Sherfey’s oil paintings and multimedia sculptures utilize expressionistic realism to convey discerning yet unassuming inner truths, like her image of white china plates on a rainy pavement, “The Complexities of Simple Needs.” That work was accepted into the collection of Her Majesty Queen Sonja of Norway. An opening reception is scheduled for 1-5 p.m. Sunday at the gallery. The exhibit runs to Dec. 1. For more information, visit
