Sky Shineman Art Talk at Central Library, September 19
Sandpapering, bleaching, pleating… these aren’t typical techniques artists employ in creating paintings. But Sky Shineman uses these and other unusual methods to achieve intriguing effects in her work. She will give insight into her creative process in a public talk on Thursday, September 19 at 1:30 p.m. at the downtown Birmingham Public Library (BPL) located at 2100 Park Place. The event will be held in the Arrington Auditorium and is co-sponsored by BPL and the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Alabama, Birmingham. It is free and open to the public. After the talk, Shineman will conduct a tour of the exhibit of her work which is currently on view in the Fourth Floor Exhibition Gallery of the library. The exhibit, titled Surfacing: The Paintings of Sky Shineman runs through September 19, 2013 and is on view during regular hours of operation.
