Every week, Portland Art Gallery will be providing a new edition of Art Matters. Susan Sherrill Axelrod has long been a part of the Portland Art Gallery art community and has closely followed the lives and careers of many of its artists. For Art Matters, Sherrill Axelrod will be sitting down with each of our artists to get an update about their trajectory over the past couple of years and to learn more about what inspires them today.
Sherrill Axelrod is a seasoned editor and writer whose work has covered a broad range of lifestyle subjects — food and drink, art and design, preservation and sustainability. In 2020, she became editor-in-chief of Culture, a national media brand focused on the enjoyment and business of cheese. She lives in Maine’s midcoast and enjoys being on the water as much as possible, hiking with her dog, Lucy, and a well-made cocktail.
