Written by ChaddsFordLive on December 26, 2021
The Darlington Arts Center in Concord Township starts with a new exhibition in 2022 Lynnette ShelleyGallery Opening & Reception on Saturday, January 8th from 6.30pm to 8pm
Lynnette Shelley is an award-winning Pennsylvania artist specializing in contemporary mixed media animal and nature paintings. She combines her great love for wild animals, patterns and archetypes in her strikingly unique works of art and creates highly detailed and complex compositions with an ingenious process that was developed from a structure of several layers and techniques both in drawing and painting from hatching to ink splashes towards linear painting. Some of Shelley’s works (her “fauxsaic” paintings) also contain elements of collage in which she adds hand-colored and cut watercolor paper in a process reminiscent of mosaic tile.
Shelley’s animal and nature-themed artworks have been exhibited in museums, art galleries, and other venues both nationally and regionally. In 2021 she was awarded the status of “Master Artisan” by the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen. Originally from Delaware, she lives in Ambler, Pennsylvania and has a private studio in Norristown.
The exhibition runs until February 20, and all pieces on display are available for purchase. Entry to the gallery is free and open to the public.
Entry to the reception is also free, however RSVP is required to be emailed to Michael Hahn, Program Manager [email protected]. Light refreshments are served. Social distancing is observed and masks are required unless guests are eating or drinking.
