Shelley Feinerman For most of her career Shelley was a representational artist who embraced the possibilities of a synthesis between abstraction and representation. Always a colorist, it was during her 2012 residency at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, that she continued with a new direction begun in her studio. Foregoing oil on canvas, she gravitated to spray paint, collage, acrylic paint, stenciling, pastel, found objects and fabric. Eventually, she was led back to painting on linen but now in tandem with the other pieces.
Shelley had a one woman show at Atlantic Gallery in 2014. In January 2016, she became a member of the Prince Street Gallery. She was part of a new members show in 2017 and a painting, August Late May was selected for the juried show at the Masur Museum in Monroe, Louisiana. She continues to produce work that is beautiful and intelligent and keeps fighting the good fight.
