DESCRIPTION

In the project space, Shanna Waddell (b. 1981, Long Beach, CA) will present to us a recent canvas, whose deft and fluent paint handling and light-filled colors belie a rather dramatic autobiographical event, which paralleled the events surrounding the Heaven's Gate Cult in California.
Waddell received her BFA from California State University Long Beach, 2006, and her MFA in painting from Tyler School of Art, 2010.  She has participated in several exhibitions: F and N Gallery Fishtown, PA, 2009; IdyllwildARTS Idyllwild, CA, and Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, both 2008; as well as LA Art Space Culver City, 2006. She lives and works in Philadelphia.
