Paper mosaic exhibit in Vise Library

Paper Mosaics

by Heloise Shilstat

Vise Library

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 Stones River in Rutherford County. My quilt pictures were inspired by the quilts made by a Rutherford County woman.” Ms. Shilstat is a member of the Murfreesboro Art League and the Stones River Craft Association.
