Shelley Gardner

I moved to Oakland in 1976 to attend the graduate program in sculpture at California College of Arts and Crafts. I have had solo exhibits at Stanislaus State University, SFMOMA cafe, Blue Line Arts in Roseville, Michael Warren Gallery in Denver, Morris Graves Museum in Eureka, Merced College, The Lesher Center for the Arts in Walnut Creek.
Currently, i am working with used denim jeans which allows me to divert material from the waste stream. Denim jeans have a particular significance in people's lives, representing memorable moments and marking time. In much the same way a pair of leather gloves or boots takes on the shape of the wearer, denim creases to conform to the body.
