"9_7", small vignettes series, Shanna Shearer


For a long time my work was a series of ambitious allegories based on my interest in human psychology and human relationships with each other, our environment, and its inhabitants. Stripping away the symbolism and narrative of this earlier work, my painting turned toward the formalities and synchronicity of painting and seeing, to focus on light, shape, color, and brushwork. These small oil paintings and pigmented pulp paintings referenced domestic environments and objects, to create expressive and dramatic vignettes that represented quiet moments of the everyday. My time in the studio with this work was silent and focused, concentrated on finding moments of interest that often borders on abstraction.

This emphasis on engaging with the act of painting in a way that requires focused visual and mental definition paralleled my interest in finding the significance in the visually mundane. This way of painting signified an important shift from seeing a painting as a narrative to seeing it as a spatial and tonal story told by the paint itself. This shift inspired a new series of watercolor paintings whose loose, watery properties lend well to using the medium itself to tell the story instead of relying on narrative.

The paintbrush is a tool I cannot live without. Not only is it a physical extension of my limb, it is the only thing that can translate visual and mental information in a way that feels significant for me.


I am a pretty traditional painter and use typical painter's tools to work. However, for my last series of watercolor paintings referencing Lake Superior, I used water from the lake to make the paintings. It seemed like the appropriate thing to do . . . make the subject literally a part of the work.

Printmaker and mixed media artist Carol L. Myers joins the 2020 Mistletoe Market Virtual Artist & Artisan Gallery with spiritual and healing artwork, which is important to her always, and especially during the pandemic.

Healing is part of Carol's spiritual DNA. From the Johns Hopkins Hospital School of Nursing to her first job as an RN in Ann Arbor, Michigan—where she was inspired to follow her creative and artistic instincts—Carol moved on to a BFA in Printmaking from the University of Michigan, and has since combined art, teaching, nursing, marriage, and family to satisfy her nurturing and healing nature.

Carol works from her home studio on Paw Paw Lake in Watervliet, Michigan, and her public studio at the Box Factory for the Arts in St. Joseph. Inspired by her lake walks and visits to Rocky Gap Park, her favorite beach, her art is inspired by nature and the “internal landscape of spirit . . . the architecture of nature.” Carol is a self-professed “magpie collector of stones and bones and other fascinating objects,” found on her forays into nature, and incorporates these found treasures into various mediums to follow her heart—and her art.

For this year’s Mistletoe Market, Carol has created digital art, small encaustic works, mixed media angels, and small accordion Pencil Prayer Books. Her angels are made from cardboard, encaustic wax, buttons, beads, and other found objects, and reflect her practice of totems and embodied spirits.

Carol’s Pencil Prayer Books are accordion books that fit in the palm of your hand. Each book is created with the intention of healing, and expresses her awe of the natural world and the web that connects us all. Each book becomes a conversation; each prayer connecting to the next to bring healing energy and transform the spirit into something tangible.

These artworks would make thoughtful gifts to help guide your family and friends through this very difficult time.

Happy shopping and happy holidays!

The South Haven Center for the Arts thanks Carol for her contribution to the 2020 Mistletoe Market Virtual Artist & Artisan Gallery, and for helping the art center continue to further its mission of enriching our community through the arts.

The 2020 Mistletoe Market Artist & Artisan Gallery was made possible by the Michigan Council for Arts & Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts, and sponsored by South Haven’s Hardt Insurance and the Edward Jones Office of Paul Hix.
