CONNEAUT ARTIST’S WORK SELECTED FOR NEW YORK EXHIBIT
Jamestown, NY – Conneaut artist Sandy Schelenberger’s “Winter Solstice” is among the selections for Women Create, the first juried exhibit of women’s art at the new 3rd On 3rd Gallery in downtown Jamestown, New York.
With the February 11-March 31 show intended to feature the work of local and regional women, the preponderance of artists come from throughout western New York. Schelenberger is the only Ohio artist to be included.
Women Create will display a wide range of art and fine crafts in a variety of media.
Shelenberger is a fiber artist and designer with more than 25 years experience. Her work has been widely exhibited nationally and in international exhibits in Prague, Czechoslovakia and Paris, France. She received a Juror’s Award of Merit in the prestigious Quilt National 2005.
A member of the board of Textile Art Alliance, Schelenberger has had her work published in several books and publications. She recently held an Open Studio Event with area artists to raise funds for the local Humane Society.
In her application for the show, Schelenberger noted that “My work reflects my inner journey and the resistance to letting go; control versus release. I use several different surface design techniques such as airbrushing, screenprinting, monoprinting and painting to create words and/or images that express my personal experiences. By sharing my artwork and teaching classes in the creative process, it is my vision to help others through art. As I change and evolve, I have become more confident in myself and my art.”
Presented in cooperation with the Arts Council for Chautauqua County, Women Create’s opening reception will be 6-8 pm on Saturday, February 11, 2012, at Jamestown’s 3rd On 3rd Gallery, 116 East Third Street, adjacent to the Reg Lenna Civic Center. Women Create will be the gallery’s first major juried show and the second major group/multi-artists show since it opened last year.
