“One of my principal goals as an artist is to capture and communicate intuitive responses to a subject, carefully and sensitively, whether I am working from a model, landscape, or still life. Successful work conveys not only the reality that the artist confronts but the very personal reaction that is inspired by that reality.”

Wendy Shalen has taught figure and landscape drawing and painting to adults and teens for more than thirty years. She is a magna cum laude graduate of Brandeis University, where she majored in art history. She also studied at the Art Students League in the late 1970s with Daniel Greene, Harvey Dinnerstein, and Robert Beverly Hale, and privately with Burton Silverman.

She has exhibited at Allan Stone Gallery (New York City); Abbot & Holder (London); Carol Craven Gallery and Gardner Colby Gallery (Martha’s Vineyard); the Katonah Museum of Art (Katonah, NY); the Housatonic Museum (Bridgeport, CT); and the Belskie Museum (Closter, NJ). Ms. Shalen has taught a Portfolio Development Drawing class for high school students, as well as landscape painting workshops for adults, at the Silvermine Guild School of Art in New Canaan, Connecticut, and at the Vytlacil Campus of the Art Students League. She is currently a member of the Prince Street Gallery in Manhattan. Her studio is located in Waccabuc, New York.
