The event represents a practice central to Silverado’s care, which is enriching lives of those with dementia by helping them to experience the fulfillment of achievement, giving and engagement.

“Cheryl has made such an impact on Southwestern art,” stated Senior Community Ambassador Dan Harrah, in the release. “We’re highlighting the years of work and achievement she has enjoyed with some of her very best pieces.  This exhibit and auction will bring everyone together for a great cause.”

Ms. English began painting at the age of 33, when she visited an unmarked Native American ruin where she saw pottery shards lining the ground. The impact of those ruins drove her quest to preserve the pottery in a series of realistic paintings, according to the release. With these paintings she pays homage to the artisans of that ancient culture.
