Sheila Harrington: “Each Day is a Celebration”

October 8, 2015 - November 1, 2015

“The cyclical changes of life, how human beings respond to them, and the juxtaposition of the natural and the man-made, fascinate me, and I can’t help drawing and painting them.”

Sheila Harrington illustrates the passage of time in her oil paintings of subtly seasonal food and drink. She works on a small scale, so the works can be completed before her models perish.

  • Opening Reception: Thursday, October 8, 6:30-8:00 pm
