Those of you in the vicinity of Floyd, VA, should drop in on her reception which is tomorrow, Saturday, August 19, 6:30 – 9:30pm
Chris Shackelford, who has been the driving force behind the School at the Jacksonville Center for the Arts for many years, has finally found time to exhibit her own work in wood, stone, and clay at the Over The Moon Gallery in Floyd, VA. This exhibit, which is titled, "Slightly Askew" contains 19 works representing nineteen years of sculpture.
Chris has been a sculptor since 1987 and has taught at Virginia Commonwealth University, Corcoran School of Art, and the Touchstone Center for Crafts in Pennysylvania.
Chris and her family live in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains and her work shows her reverence for her materials.
If you are celebrating life in Floyd this Saturday night, be sure and swing by the Over The Moon Gallery and say hello to Chris. While you are there, take time to check out the gourmet menu and wine list at the Over The Moon Cafe. It is a fine place for lunch and for light evening fare during their Friday and Saturday night events.
