Narrative painter captures “alone” moments in Color

Shelley Lowenstein, whose work has been shown at the Touchstone Gallery, the Torpedo Factory, and Glen Echo’s Yellow Barn has been named Artist-In-Residence for the month of November at Glen Echo’s Chautauqua Stone Tower.  Two receptions are planned: the first on Saturday November 5 from 5 - 8 pm, and a second reception on Saturday November 19, also from 5 - 8 pm.

 “The Stone Tower is inspiring structure.  For one month, I move in – paintings and all -- and work,” said Lowenstein.  Her Stone Tower studio is open to the public, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Friday, 12 – 5 pm, and weekends from 12 - 6 pm.  In addition, Lowenstein will present a talk called “Artists’ Tools of the Trade” on Sunday November 13 at 1 pm.

Color and light are essential in Lowenstein’s paintings ranging from small landscapes to larger figure narratives.  She has a passion for capturing moments, scenes of places and people engaged in the casual interactions that course through everyday life.  She focuses on gesture, and delights in exploring the relationships between her figures, how they interact or don’t interact…whether they are lonely, or simply alone.
