 Join us as Carol presents a lecture on her unusual development as an artist and her ground breaking technique.

 Kate Bonansinga has said of Carol Shinn's work, "Seen from afar, these works have the graphic boldness of representational painting characterized by strong contrasts paired with pleasing complements in color and form. Close inspection reveals the tactility of a surface created by a wash of cotton thread and tiny stitches that compose subtle variations in hue and also serve to convey intimate details. Her intention is to find beauty in the forms and surfaces of the physical world and convey this to the viewer."
