The Color of Music by Cheryl Vargas

The Color of Music (2020)

Acrylic on Canvas

From the Artist:

The Color of Music is a tribute to the shape and flow of the treble cleft.

The short series of notes are from the song “Stairway to Heaven” by Led Zeppelin, 1971.

When I paint, the idea comes from a single thought and evolves from a single image or idea.

As I painted the Color of Music, i seemed to appear before my very eyes, with one intense color blending into the next.

About Each Painting

These are not canvas prints.

About the Artist

Cheryl Vargas was born in Gary, Indiana and grew up in both Chicago’s Cabrini Green Housing Projects and

in a little brown house in Valparaiso Indiana. She then married and returned to Chicago’s Wrigleyville raising three sons there and ultimately moving to Oak Park, IL.

A self-taught artist with a BFA in graphic arts degree from Concordia University in River Forest, IL, she is the Creative in Chief at Studio 928, which is the culmination of many years of melding together art, technology, and teaching into a business she and her clients love.

A painter, sculptor, graphic artist, and event planner she loves portraiture—primarily acrylics, but also pastels, graphite and watercolor.

Her sculpted art brings out the beauty in the very things which pollute and clutter our environment, primarily plastics and containers.

Her work life includes promoting Studio 928, teaching, and dispelling the “starving artists” myth. Cheryl enjoys spending time with her sons and her grandchildren, traveling, and visiting with friends.


Studio 928

From March 2020 to the present, Studio 928 is a virtual art studio. Cheryl and her team host live online events for some of the top corporations in the United States.

She hopes to go back to a brick-and-mortar studio when it ultimately makes sense to do so.
