Art at Home
“Sharmon Davidson’s work makes each of my rooms into its own artpiece. There are plenty of small interesting things in my house, but her work pulls each room all together.”

Several pieces of my art have also found a home with Wesley and Caitlin Needham.

“For nearly twenty years I worked as an independent curator. My job consisted of creating, installing and managing art exhibits in my clients’ public spaces that would typically change on a quarterly basis. Therefore, it was essential I find new artists and different styles and media of pieces to exhibit in order to bring a fresh and unique feel to each show. Unfortunately, it was late in my career when I had the good fortune to be introduced to the artwork of Sharmon Davidson.
Ms. Davidson works in a range of media, including collage, mixed media, several types of printmaking and painting. Her style, while eclectic, is personal, intuitive and subtle yet somehow manages to be bold and outspoken. It’s as if there is a message encoded into the many images and forms that is waiting to be translated by the viewer. Her use of color and strong sense of design work to arrange and frame each piece much in the same way the staff (or lines) holds notes on sheet music, thus giving the viewer a sense of order and intent.
It is not surprising, therefore, that there are several of Ms. Davidson’s small collages on view in my home. I am always intrigued by the arrangement of images and shapes, nor do I tire of attempting to interpret these pieces. They add an element of delight and interest to the other works on display much as her work did when I showed it in my clients’ spaces. I’m sure they would bring the same qualities to anyone’s collection, large or small.”
