MidCurrent Featured Artist: Shirley Cleary

September 8, 2011 By: Marshall Cutchin

Artist Shirley Cleary displays some of her recent paintings in her MidCurrent artist profile. The artist lives, fishes, and paints in Montana and New Zealand and is represented by galleries in both countries. For many years she only painted in gouache but now also experiments in oil and acrylic—with a specific eye for river landscapes, upland game bird hunting imagery, and fly fishing scenes.
