Sheri Bakes is a Canadian painter living and working on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. She received a BFA from the Emily Carr University in 1998, and began exhibiting with the Bau-Xi Gallery in 2002 and the Foster/White Gallery in Seattle in 2004. She since went on to show in Calgary, New York and Los Angeles. Bakes' work explores light and atmospheric motion (wind) in nature.
Kevin Chong wrote for the Globe and Mail, "Her brooding wind-swept scenes highlight tensions not only between the sky and land, but also between the physical landscape and the world of the mind."
Currently, exhibitions of her work can be found at the Bau-Xi Gallery in Vancouver and Toronto, as well as the Foster/White Gallery in Seattle. She also shows yearly in ART Toronto and the Vancouver Bau-Xi Gallery annual Christmas show.
Her work has been placed in numerous private collections across North America and Europe, and in permanent collections with Emaar Properties, Dubai, UAE, Enunciate Conferencing, Toronto Dominion Bank, UBC Psychiatric Hospital, Vancouver General Hospital, St. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver, BC. and Swedish Hospital in Seattle.
