We are sacred ground. We are organically growing.
“From the first time I ever went to Shangri-La,
I knew I had stepped on sacred ground.
It is our responsibility to maintain that sacred ground...”

RED Art Show Nov-2014  EVENT
(10/8/2014)
RED Art Show

Starting October 8 and ending December 3, Shangri-La celebrates RED through the works of local artists Lia Galletti and Shirley Wilson Blake.

Lia Galletti was born on October 8, 1943 in Havana, Cuba. The eldest of three siblings, she grew up in Havana in a creative environment with her father, also an artist, enriching her artistic path while she watched him work. In 1960, at the age of 17, she left the island with her family and moved to New York where she finished her education and started to paint and exhibit her work in New York’s Greenwich Village and other venues on the east coast.

Shirley Blake began painting in the early 1980’s, has studied with local, national, and international artists and has taught others since 1987. She works mainly in acrylic on canvas but has a background in watercolor, mixed media, and collage as well. Her painting style is abstract focused with emphasis on design elements, color, and composition.
