We are excited to present local artist Shelby Donnelly’s exhibit titled ‘Fabric Impressions’, on show at International House from January 6 – March 28, 2014, in IHP’s East Alcove and Galleria.

Please join us on Wednesday, January 29th at 5:30pm for an opening reception, including light hors d’oeuvres and refreshments.


Fabric Impressions are works based on a four-month artist residency in Paris where Shelby sought out the current state of leisure. Through visiting markets, parks, and the countryside, she responded to everyday moments and translated them into the fantastic and surreal. In her work she creates a loose documentary referencing film, night dreams, and art history via the French Impressionists and Symoblist painters. Her work engages in formal conversations using image and contextual fragmentation that investigates a singular moment in time.

Shelby will also install nine new banners in the Galleria that respond to the cinematic themes in IHP’s Free to Love: The Cinema of the Sexual Revolution film series. This Spring, Shelby and Hannah Wnorowski will collaborate to create a one-night only installation in the main theater (date to be determined). The two artists will project films onto stages sculptures to transform and respond to the images of the projections.

Please join us for an opening reception, including light hors d’oeuvres and refreshments.
