February Spotlight ~ Shawnee Chadwick and Irene Bacon

We are proud to present two different generations of artists this month; Shawnee Chadwick and Irene Bacon. First Thursday opening reception, February 2, 5:30 pm.

The Raven by Shawnee Chadwick

Shawnee Chadwick is in high school and has dedicated herself 100% to art. For as long as she can remember, she’s always been interested in  art, starting with crayons at an early age and working her way up to pencil. She started taking painting lessons with Susy Halverson  and has seen a lot of  improvement over the years

She also takes charcoal classes with Lorena Birk, who has helped her learn to place the right shadows and detail to really make portraits come alive.

Music helps Shawnee’s imagination run wild. Whenever she hears a song that presents an image or story, she has to write it down so she can create a story of image from it. She knows if she doesn’t make it as an artist, she’ll be able to fall back into writing and illustrating stories. We think she has fantastic potential as an artist, and as a writer!

China Painting by Irene Bacon

Irene Bacon has been painting since 2001 and her china painting has delicate, old-world class. She paints regularly with a group of painters working with Marie Geisler.

China painting is an ancient art form requiring a soft touch and patience. She finds it very satisfying to create beautiful, yet functional art art objects. Floral motifs are her most common subjects, but she sometimes incorporates other art interests of landscape and calligraphy.

We are excited to present these two talented artists’ works, along with Michael Tolleson and Beth Bailey, during the month of February.

Please join us for our First Thursday opening reception  on Thursday, February 2 at 5:30 pm where you can meet the artists. We hope to see you there!
