September First Friday

Setember 1, 5-8 pm

In Full Color: Mixed Media Collage
by Shannon Crandall

Twenty years ago, Shannon Crandall began experimenting with acrylic and collage. She loved the intuitive nature of the art. Today she lets the various elements reveal themselves as she creates many layers of acrylic paint and collage.

Examples of the results of her two decades of experimentation will be on display at Gallery 54 in Skaneateles, NY beginning with the September 1 opening reception for her month-long show as the gallery's guest artist. The reception will be open from 5 to 8 pm.

Shannon describes her art as mixed media featuring many layers of vibrant color and whimsical themes. As the September guest artist she will concentrate on the use of paper and “up-cycled materials.” “I think the whimsical nature of my work, combined with the layers of paper and paint makes it uniques,” she said recently. When asked if she had any mentors, Shannon listed Flora Bowley, Grandma Moses, and Gustav Klint.

She enjoys solving the creative problem in front of her as she begins a piece. She then allows the balance and flow that results in the finished piece be her reward.

Shannon earned a B.A. in art history from the University of Maryland. Her work has been exhibited at the Artisan's Corner in Clinton, NY; Main Street Arts in Clifton Springs, NY; the Finger Lakes Gallery in Canandaigua, NY; and the Shoe Factory in Rochester, NY.

Shannon's reception will be accompanied by the guitar music of Jane Zell. Wine and light refreshments will be served from
5 to 8 pm.
