Sheli Peterson July-August




July & August 2016

 Artist of the Month 

Sheli Petersen - Illustrator

 Kimmel Gallery

 Morton-James Public Library


The public is invited to view the exhibit

 during regular library hours



Sheli Petersen is a visual storyteller, inspired by the relationship between life cycles and landscapes, and enjoys the process of spontaneous mark-making that suggests a mythological dimension. In addition to her fine art, Petersen brings her interest in nature and mythology to illustrated children’s books. Included in the Kimmel Gallery exhibition are excerpts from How Two Mice Started a War and The Ravens of Greystone Farm, as well as Voladores, published by McGraw Hill. Petersen’s clients include McGraw-Hill, Harcourt, Highlights for Children Magazine, and the National Heritage Museum. She exhibits her award-winning work at regional and national venues.
