Works by University of Wyoming Associate Professor Shelby Shadwell will be displayed at the Whitney Center for the Arts in Sheridan starting Thursday, Sept. 12.
The “Comedie” exhibition runs through Oct. 17 in the Edward A. Whitney Gallery, which is open Mondays through Fridays from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. and by appointment on weekends.
An artist talk takes place Thursday from 4-5 p.m., followed by an opening reception from 5-7 p.m.
A two-time recipient of the Visual Arts Fellowship from the Wyoming Arts Council, Shadwell actively exhibits across the nation. He recently won first place in the International Drawing Annual 9 from the Manifest Creative Research Gallery and Drawing Center in Cincinnati, where he also had a solo show in February 2013. He also received the Best of Show Award in “Inspired Lines: The Appleton Museum of Art’s Drawing Biennial” in Ocala, Fla., from juror Alison Ferris in 2016. He was awarded a solo exhibition at the APEX Space at the Portland Art Museum in Oregon in 2016, and his work is included in its permanent collection.
Other recent exhibitions include “The Big Draw,” a group show at the William Havu Gallery in Denver, and “Shape-shifter: Drawing from Observation,” a group exhibition at the University of Dallas in Texas.
Shadwell received his bachelor’s degree 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 a master’s degree in printmaking and drawing in 2006.
