After a tumultuous year of ups and downs pulling and pushing us towards and away from desired outcomes like a carnival ride, it’s time to freeze the action and pause at the height of possibility when the rush of energy invigorates and fills you with unbridled joy and exhilaration in the moment.
This year’s annual members’ exhibition asks our artists to savor the moment, revel with enthusiasm, and celebrate the exuberance of life with the Cajun French phrase “Laissez les bons temps rouler!” — a version of “Let the good times roll!” For the exhibition, CCP asks its member artists to dig deep and reflect on the vibrancy of a life well-lived, experienced with relish and enthusiasm, the momentum behind making the days count. Grab that brass ring and jump in with both feet and show us your unbridled passion for being.

Members’ Show 2021 — Best in Show Exhibition Diane Cherr
Diane Cherr received the award for Best in Show from the 2020 Annual Members Exhibition. Her prints combine narratives from personal histories and mementos to create a new view of the world, relying heavily on a foundation of story telling. She uses feminist elements alongside symbols from her heritage and personal traditions in her prints. Cherr’s work bursts with joy, whimsy and color.
