During the month of May, Crozet Artisan Depot proudly presents new work by graphic designer and illustrator Barbara Shenefield. Barbara will be at the Second Saturday Opening Reception on May 12th from 3-5pm in the historic Crozet train depot.
In this month-long show and sale, Barbara presents her beautiful art posters which represent many of Virginia’s most scenic features and locations. These posters are in a style reminiscent of the classic posters commissioned for the National Parks. Though they have a retro sensibility, they are also very clean and contemporary-looking.
We encourage you to visit The Depot soon to view her work! For more information please sign-up to receive our monthly newsletter – www.crozetartisandepot.com –or like our Facebook page – www.facebook.com/crozetartisandepot.
A native New Yorker, Barbara Shenefield currently resides in Charlottesville, VA. Her education is in art, architecture, and science. She earned a BFA in visual art from Purchase College, and attended architecture school at Cooper Union.
“Living in such a beautiful place makes making art easy and inspiring. I draw either on paper or directly in the computer. The posters are printed with a very high resolution printer using ultrachrome inks on high quality Kae-Lin paper. The flat, densely pigmented areas of color have an appearance similar to silkscreened prints.”
