Balrbara Shenefield, a Charlottesville-based artist, will exhibit her posters at Possum's Store from December 3rd, through December 23rd. The opening reception is on Saturday, December 3rd, 6:00-7:30 p.m.
Barbara's posters are reminiscent of classic National Parks posters. They have a retro sensibility with a contemporary flair. The New Deal brought arowork supported by the US government, as well as messaging that served the people of this country: protect our natural resources, visit National Parks, public health is a concern for all of us, being citizen means participating. Barbara's recent posters pick up a style of that era and some of the messaging, which remains relevant today. Some recent projects are posters with social messaging, particularly about a future that acknowledges changing climate and takes productive steps to ameliorate its causes and its effects.
Posters are available framed or unframed and make wonderful gifts. Visit the website to see more examples of Barbara's work.?
