August 6, 2014 – New Rochelle, NY – The Lazarus Gallery of United Hebrew of New Rochelle will present a solo exhibition entitled Art on Paper, by renowned local artist Diane Cherr, September 13 through October 17th.   Cherr works with rich colors, intricate designs and narrative stories. She primarily works on handmade paper, interpreting stories and concepts paying homage to women’s empowerment, eastern philosophy, mythology and Jewish heritage and traditions. She also uses iconic symbols, such as trees, moons, hearts, pomegranates and biblical references in her work.
