January Art After Hours
featuring Sharon Shaffer
"Imagining The Landscape"
Artist Statement: This series of watercolors draws on the everyday landscape around us. I find the land full of patterns, light, colors and textures and have used these to create this series. While creating these images, stories from old, new, real and imagined memories were running through my mind. I have left them as just the landscape for you to add your own story and memories as you view the images.
I studied studio art at SUNY Potsdam then settled in Massachusetts to raise our family. During that time I kept working in various art fields and started Shady Oak Studio featuring my handmade pottery. We then moved in 2008 to Wake Forest where I have continued making pots and joined The Cotton Company. I have now expanded my body of work to include paintings. This current series is worked with watercolor, gouache and pen and ink on paper.
Sharon's January exhibit will hang in The Cotton Company Gallery from
January 5th - February 8th.
