Cherie’s works are done in acrylic paint on canvas and emphasize such elements as color, texture, pattern, and light. They range in size from 11”x14” to 24”x30”; are framed in oak; with most pieces available for sale.

Ron Netten and Cherie have also recently installed an exhibition in the windows of what is known to Storm Lake residents as the “Old Montgomery Ward Building” in downtown Storm Lake. This building did, in fact, once house a Montgomery Ward Store, but is now used for storage. When asked by the owner about the possibility of displaying their work in the front window areas the two artists jumped at the opportunity to make their art more visible in the community. The exhibit consists of ceramic pieces by Ron and paintings by Cherie and is located east of Vista Theatre on Lake Avenue. Pieces are available for sale by contacting artists directly and contact information is provided at the site. The works in the space will rotate due to the demands of other exhibitions and art fairs, but Ron and Cherie will keep pieces on display as consistently as possible.
