AILEE CHEAH EXHIBIT IN THE LIBRARY GALLERY

CORONA, CA–The Corona Public Library Gallery will be featuring Ailee Cheah’s artistic collections March 5 through April 28, 2018. Ailee’s two collections feature both a riot of bright acrylic paintings as well as pastel and colored pencil drawings.

AcrylicThe community is invited to an artist reception on Wednesday, March 14 at 6:30 p.m. in the library.

Ailee’s artistic influence comes from her hometown, the beautiful tropical island of Penang in Malaysia. Growing up, she attended an all-girls Covenant School next to the sea. Her art teachers encouraged her artistic talent and she had the privilege of painting vivid murals in the school hallway, which are still on display today. 

Colored pencils

 Ailee was a teacher in Malaysia and pursued her Fine Arts degree there before immigrating to the United States in 1997. Her dream of exploring Europe’s Renaissance art came true when she became a flight attendant, allowing her the opportunity to travel.

Ailee is a current member of the Corona Arts Association where she has received numerous awards for her artwork. Her artistic collections focus on acrylic paintings, pastel, and colored pencils. Stop by the artist reception to meet Ailee and enjoy her creative art pieces.
