show

Opening First Thursday, September 7 and First Friday, September 8

Butters Gallery is pleased to present our premiere solo exhibition introducing the paintings of Stephanie Shank.  

Born in St. Louis, MO, Stephanie Shank studied painting at Lindenwood College in St. Charles, Missouri and the University of Missouri in Kansas City where she received her B.F.A. in 1976.  The following decade, she applied her creative talents practically through commercial art and window display design for department stores.  Those years were punctuated with independent studies with influential mentors and workshops.  She relocated to the desert Southwest in the late 1980's where the stunningly clear light of the  Arizona environs illuminated and informed the brilliant hues of her expressionistic paintings.  To expand her visceral experiences, Shank divides her studio time between Tucson, Arizona and Portland, Oregon.  Working in mixed media, predominately acrylic, oil sticks, and charcoal, her artistic vision expresses the vibrant rhythm of the inner narrative.  She is indebted to the Abstract Expressionist action painters, particularly Joan Mitchell, Willem de Kooning and Franz Kline.

Stephanie Shank's paintings are in numerous private and public collections nationwide.
