In 1986 Sherrie Riley Hawk opened the Riley Hawk Gallery, which became one of the most recognizable galleries in the country showcasing glass. The Sherrie Gallerie was launched in 2004, a new gallery committed to exhibiting national and regional contemporary artists working in ceramics, glass, wood, fiber, and jewelry. The Sherrie Gallerie, located in the heart of Columbus’ Short North, adheres to a competitive exhibition schedule of 10+ shows every year. Dedicated to strengthening the public’s relationship with contemporary art, the gallery partners with many local community projects and events. In addition, the Sherrie Gallerie participates in national art fairs throughout the country including the SOFA exhibitions and Art Palm Beach.
Sherrie Riley Hawk has curated exhibitions for the Columbus Museum of Art, Springfield Museum and the Canton Art Museum, and has served as juror for numerous museum exhibitions, art fairs and organizations.
