Paper mosaic exhibit in Vise Library
by Heloise Shilstat
August 15 – October 15, 2011
Heloise Shilstat grew up in Manchester, Tennessee and now lives in Murfreesboro. Her paper mosaics were created from cut or torn magazine paper, glued onto foam core board. She states, “I started making these pictures in 2006 after reading that this technique is sometimes used to teach art students to recognize subtleties in shading. Ideas for my pictures usually come from nature. In Manchester, we lived on the Little Duck River; now I live in the woods on the East Fork of the StonesRiver in RutherfordCounty. My quilt pictures were inspired by the quilts made by a RutherfordCounty woman.” Ms. Shilstat is a member of the Murfreesboro Art League and the Stones River Craft Association.
