Artist Bio

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.”

Second Saturdays Art Opening @ Art on the Trax with Linda Verdery

“Evocations” by Linda Verdery

Art on the Trax will present “Evocations” by Linda Verdery during the month of September, with a Second Saturday Artist Reception on Saturday, September 9th from 4-6pm.

From the Artist

I’ve come to painting after a career as a writer and teacher of Literature where Voice matters. Voice seems essential to painting as well. The natural world speaks in its various seasons and moods. These Evocationsrespond to the seasons: the bouyant light and blanketed calm of winter snows, Autumn’s mute fog or sanguine fields, Spring’s quaking greens, Summer’s call to look close and far. And sometimes a clutch of  flowers that simply say, Glad to be alive.

Please join us for a Second Saturday Opening Reception September 9th. This reception is part of Crozet’s Second Saturday events and runs from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. We’ll be serving up The Art Box’s famous ice cream sundaes topped with fruit from local orchards.

All events are free and open to the public. Art on the Trax is located at Creative Framing and The Art Box, across from the Olde Crozet Train Station, 5784 Three Notch’d Road in Crozet, Virginia.
