Recent Interview in VoyageChicago

My work is featured:
• Encaustic Art in the Twenty-First Century (E. Ashley Rooney, ed.), available here
Studio Visit Magazine includes my work each year, most recently in Volume 44, juried by Francine Weiss


"Shelley Gilchrist . . . defies the boundaries of the rectangle and square, as her shaped grounds and surface design convey rhythms, organic patterns, land formation, and water motion."
--Kim Bernard, Encaustic Art in the Twenty-First Century
