Turn it Around - Amy Shackleton
Reception and Live Painting: November 8th, 7-11pm
Exhibition: November 7th-21st, 2019
Shackleton’s inventive painting process has engaged over 15 million viewers online. Rather than paintbrushes, she uses squeeze bottles and gravity as her primary tools for creation. Liquid paint is dripped, poured and layered as the canvas is turned to navigate.
Inspired by her travels, Shackleton’s work depicts an uncertain future where cities blend with nature. She draws upon the real life urgency regarding climate change and uses visual art to question our future – be it utopian or apocalyptic.
With this exhibit, Shackleton suggests that we can “Turn it Around.” She brings nature to the forefront to inspire innovative city planning and development that has minimal impact on surrounding habitats. Come watch Shackleton turn a canvas around at the opening reception. She will be painting live and chatting with guests from 7-11pm.
