Ms. O'Brien has shown work with Jeffrey Moose Gallery since 1998 andher whimsical paintings and prints have delighted people of all ages. She now faces a struggle with breast cancer and suggested the auction as a meansof creating awareness of this disease and its effect on women and theirfamilies.

Cheri paints in an expressionist style, working in acrylics on canvas. Her mealoncholy humans and animals, with enlarged heads and snake-like Olive Oyl arms, have profound personality despite their cartoony appearance. Her subjects have included couples on dates, religious icons including various saints and a variety of animals. In the last 5 years she has added a steady stream of northwest landscapes featuring the Palouse andSkagit Valley to her repertoire.

In some past exhibitions, Ms. Obrien focused on animal themes: "Woof: The Dog in Art" at Bainbridge Arts and Crafts Gallery and "Like Cats and Dogs" at the Pratt Art Gallery in Seattle. Ms. Obrien has shown work in Northwest Aids Foundation exhibitions for several years as well as exhibiting in many University of Washington's Henry Art Gallery "Bashes"exhibitions and several Bumbershoot shows. She was Snohomish County Artistof the Year in 1997.

Cheri O'Brien, Jeffrey Moose Gallery, and the Roosevelt Hotel, have teamed up with the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and nearly 20 other artists to host an an invitational silent art auction to benefit Breast Cancer Research this Thursday, September 15th from 5:00 until 8 PM at the hotel, 1531 Seventh Ave., Seattle.
