About

Shelby is currently an Associate Professor in the Art and Art History Program at the University of Wyoming, and he has greatly enjoyed teaching and making artwork in Laramie over the past few years. Born and raised in Springfield, Missouri, Shelby spent most of his years in the Midwest. In 2003 he received his BFA from Washington University School of Fine Art in St. Louis, where he studied printmaking and drawing as a Kenneth E. Hudson Scholar. He accepted a full fellowship to attend Southern Illinois University Carbondale and went on to graduate with an MFA in printmaking and drawing in 2006.

A two time recipient of the Visual Arts Fellowship from the Wyoming Arts Council, Shelby actively exhibits across the nation. He recently won the First Place Prize in the International Drawing Annual 9 from the Manifest Creative Research Gallery and Drawing Center in Cincinnatti, OH where he also had a solo show in February 2013 and is included in a total of five INDA publications. Shelby was also the recipient of the Best of Show Award in “Inspired Lines: The Appleton Museum of Art’s Drawing Biennial” in Ocala, FL from juror Alison Ferris in 2016. In 2015, Shelby was awarded a solo exhibition at the APEX Space at the Portland Art Museum in OR, and his work is included in their permanent collection.
