on view: February 13–February 23, 2024
reception: February 16, 5-7 pm
Strata Gallery presents an Emerging Member solo exhibition, Imprint by Arizona-based artist Jandey Shackelford. Imprint is on view February 13 through February 23, with a special reception on Friday, February 16 from 5-7 pm.
Jandey Shackelford’s interdisciplinary art practice is centered on the persistent stereotypes, gender roles, and forms of oppression that persist in today’s society, specifically in a home or house setting. Shackelford uses footprints from herself and others to serve as tangible evidence, presence, and memory of the impact that this space can have on those who occupy it. Visitors will experience an immersive experience at Strata Gallery during Shackelford’s exhibition.
Jandey Shackelford stated, “As an emerging member of Strata Gallery, it’s been exciting to plan for a solo exhibition on the heels of graduating with my MFA. I am very excited to exhibit in Santa Fe because of the supportive community surrounding the gallery. My work employs bodies, space, interaction and physical manipulation of materials. The act of creating these drawings represents an effort to transcend the space of sadness from which they were born.”
Jandey Shackelford received her MFA from the University of Arizona in May of 2023. Her work has been exhibited both in the United States and internationally. This is her first solo exhibition in New Mexico.
Emerging Artist Program: This project is supported in part by New Mexico Arts, a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs, and by the National Endowment for the Arts.
