HAA artist Sharon Menary currently has a one woman show on display at the Liberty Point Gallery within the Henderson Multigenerational Center. The title of the show is "View the World Through Artist Colors." It was installed on the 16th of this month and will remain available for viewing now through September 17, 2010. The exhibit is free and open to the public. The Henderson Multigenerational Center is located at 250 S. Green Valley Parkway and open Monday through Friday from 5:00 am to 9:00 pm, Saturday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, and Sunday 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Regarding her work and her philosophy, Sharon says the following:

"I have tried a lot of things in my life but one thing was always present. I wanted to be an artist. I was afraid to let go of traditional thinking—'you need a day job.' When I let go of that limiting thought, I allowed myself, for the first time, to redefine who I wanted to be and what I wanted to do. Freedom is scary at first, then exhilarating."
