Artist of the Month - Shirley Mangin
Artist of the month
The Artist of the Month program provides an excellent opportunity for established and emerging artists within the local community to display their works.
This program provides a means of increasing your profile in the community, and selling your artwork. The opportunity to hold an exhibition launch is also available, if you are interested in participating in the program please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have been painting for a few years now after receiving an art class for my birthday and have been attending classes with Anne Bowden of Blackwood ever since. I am a relative beginner having had no previous formal training in art, but enjoy the creativity it brings out in me.
I have been painting in pastel for much of this time. I love that it is so vibrant and I love the feel of it rather than a brush.
I joined Pastel Artists of South Australia about 7 years ago and am now on the committee and am the Exhibition Coordinator. I really enjoy being around other artists and sharing that passion. I particular love watching other people paint and have learnt so much.
I am also a member of the Royal South Australian Society of Arts and, again am loving learning so much and meeting like minded people.
This is my fourth solo exhibitions and have had two others with two other artists, as well as exhibiting pieces in collective exhibitions.
