    Surfacing: The Paintings of Sky Shineman

    The Birmingham Public Library is pleased to announce its newest exhibition titled Surfacing: The Paintings of Sky Shineman. This exhibition is scheduled to open August 15, 2013 in the Fourth Floor Exhibition Gallery of the Central Library located at 2100 Park Place. An opening reception is scheduled for Saturday, August 17 from 3:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. in the Fourth Floor Board Room. The exhibition runs through September 20, 2013 and is on view during the library’s regular hours of operation.  

    Sky Shineman is Assistant Professor of Art in the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. She received both her MFA in Studio Art and BS in English Education from Ohio State University in Columbus. She states, “In painting, I am interested in physical processes and phenomenal imagery. By employing reductive methods such as sanding and bleaching, I attempt to bring awareness to the tactile qualities of the painting object while creating imagery that is connected to its making. Ideally the process and the product overlap and enrich one another providing a multi-sensory experience. The complex relationship between how something looks and how it has come to being is the compelling question behind the Surfacing series.”
