Sharon Clabo's Profile

About

Sharon Clabo's work is subtle as well as bold; both restrained and assertive. Her work is influenced by nature, by history, by color and its absence, and by playfulness, risk-taking, and the high adventure inherent in all creativity.

She loves experimenting with media..often incorporating stitched painted papers or fabric into a piece. She enjoys using natural materials such as coffee, tea, or vegetable dyes, along with more traditional media such as acrylic and watercolor paints.

On any given day you might catch her in her yard washing down a canvas or sheet of paper with a garden hose..or dousing it with alcohol, salt water, or hydrogen peroxide. For her there is no such thing as a destroyed surface..something can always be salvaged, something can always be changed..and typically in wonderfully unexpected ways!…

Recently some of my work was selected to be featured in a juried show featuring Folk Art at the Trinity Gallery in Atlanta. February 2014. I am excited and happy about this, since most of my work has been categorized as Contemporary Art. I don't care much for categories in art or anything else..but I am very much looking forward to participating in this show!

Selected solo shows from 2012:

The Gallery at Macon Arts Alliance - February 2012 solo show with Georgia potter Jim Sandefur (Sharon as the solo painter and Jim the solo ceramic artist). A video of this show can be seen here:

The Roasted Cafe - Upcoming November 6, 2012.

In October 2012 received a "Special Recognition" award from the Light Space & Time Online Gallery.
