"When I first came to West Stockbridge in the late sixties, I felt welcomed by the warm people and open landscape. I always hoped I'd be able to return one day and plant roots." And now she has. She and her husband, composer/farmer Bill Taylor, who is the pianist for the West Stockbridge Village Congregational Church, live close by on their Floodgate Farm in Sandisfield, MA. The couple take their seasonal produce to the West Stockbridge Farmers Market on Thursdays.

Paula Shalan, Ceramics, is our Meet the Artist on Tuesday May 23 at 3pm;

"With acute attention to detail, I hand craft smoke fired sculptures and vessels as an antidote to our fast paced technological lives. My aim is to distill and highlight the astounding beauty and quiet wisdom of our Forests. I use local clay, no glaze, and recycled materials for fuel with respect to the earth's limited resources. The direct hand- to- clay method of pinch, coil and slab construction (no wheel) begs attention to a nuanced touch. Through innovation and
experimentation, I am able to take a random and primitive atmospheric pit firing and create work with a controlled contemporary aesthetic."


Paula Shalan, is the second in three generations of potters. Educated at Sarah Lawrence College and The Art Institute of Chicago, she exhibits nationally at galleries and retail shows including The Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show and The Smithsonian Craft Show. She received a national award for sustainability at the Smithsonian Craft Show as well as the 2018
Distinction in Ceramics award from The Society of Arts and Crafts. Her work has been published in numerous magazines including Ceramic Art and Perception and Ceramics Monthly. Participating as an artist-in-residence at both Acadia National Park and The Dune Shacks on the Outer Cape has inspired her work. “My work is a quiet tribute to the details found in nature.” for more information: www.paulashalan.com

"If we do not see it, do we believe it? Art can reveal truths in a way that might not
otherwise be seen and embraced.The majesty of our environment may sometimes be
missed while the destruction of nature may also sometimes seem insignificant. But we are
all connected, like the roots of trees, we grow together, we live together and die together.
We must see it all to believe it, to appreciate it, to discover it and to nourish it. My art
layers the trees and waterfalls, streams and sunlight with the human spirit and form, so that
we might appreciate this inter-connectedness. My process is as layered as my concept.
Using archival digital photographs, encaustic paints, sometimes wood and fiberglass, my
art works can be two or three dimensional. It all seeks to visualize and remind us that we
are our environment.

"I make work with soft pastels that is gestural and saturated with pure pigment on paper.  

A story unfolds in the landscape, street scape, or interior space. Landscapes grab me with their light, often mysterious, distant or intimate. I become more aware of the power and beauty of the world around us as I describe it with color, line and shape.

 

I earned a BA in Studio Art, concentrating in printmaking. I then studied architecture, and worked in photography and architectural marketing. Next, after a move to NYC, I was an archivist and worked on publications for art galleries. While raising a family in NY, CT, and NJ, I earned a certificate in Appraisal in Fine and Decorative Arts, while continuing to draw and work in watercolor, until I discovered the strength and rich pigment of soft pastel on paper."

Sally will talk about her work and demonstrate her use of pastels.
