Danielle Shelley is a "New Mexico Artist to Know"



Congratulations to Danielle!  Her work has been chosen by Southwest Contemporary, which publishes THE Magazine, as one of 12 artists to know in 2020.  This is quite an honor, as her work was chosen from over 400 submissions.  The competition was juried by Andrew Connors, director of the Albuquerque Museum.  A two-page spread featuring Danielle and her stitchery appears in this month's THE Magazine.

The Lady Minimalists are proud to have Danielle as a member, and lucky to have shown her work first, at our ahha Tulsa exhibit last summer (see previous blog post).

If you are a Santa Fe peep,  please attend the reception for the group exhibition of all twelve artists at Southwest Contemporary's project space, 1415 West Alameda Street in Santa Fe,  5-8:00 p.m. on March 6th.    The Lady Minimalists will surely be there to celebrate with Danielle.  If you can't make it on the 6th, the show will stay up until April 25th.

A quote from the magazine feature: "Shelley, who earned critical acclaim as a painter, has found similar success as a textile wizard, thanks to work such as her Black Lines series, which showcases Shelley's remarkable cross stitching on linen that depicts geometric patterns muted Rubik's cube-type colors."
