Shelley Caldwell is an alumna of Minnesota State University, Mankato, with a BFA and MA in Drawing and Installation. She has served as adjunct faculty at MNSU and as a Visiting Instructor at Gustavus Adolphus College. Her work has been featured extensively throughout greater Minnesota centering around Mankato. She held residency at the Tofte Lake Center outside Ely, MN and has received grants from the Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council, Springboard for the Arts, and the Minnesota State Arts Board. Compelled by the surrounding landscape, she presently works from her family farm in rural Faribault County.
Shelley produces mixed media works on paper & large-scale, site-specific installations. Her work combines observational drawing of botanical and other subjects with formal abstraction, emphasizing line, pattern, and color using a variety of processes and materials such as Micron pen, various inks, collage, and masking techniques. The work celebrates the simple items and experiences that define our existence.
