2nd Annual Gratitude Exhibit at Kreuser Gallery


I am excited to take part in the 2nd Annual “Gratitude” exhibit next month at Kreuser Gallery featuring over 150 local artists!


I have gratitude for everyone that has helped me develop as an artist over this past year. This exposure has lead me in new and exciting directions. I have been quiet lately while I launch my new website and line of home decor. I have been inspired by my time at Cottonwood Center for the Arts, and by the abundance of talent, generosity and inspiration that this community provides. Come see it for yourself!


Opening Reception, Friday, February 7th, 5-9pm with Music by It Comes in Waves @drdubclass and a live performance at 7pm by Jasmine Dillavou @jasminerunswithscissors!


Exhibit runs February 7th-27th

125 E Boulder Street CSC 80903

Shirley Bales, artist

I am artist discovering, creating and envisioning a brighter future through luminous color. Art that humbles us with splendor, reminds us of the source of it all and our place in this vast world.


Getting Lost in the Process

I paint vibrant, energetic, whimsical, and inherently beautiful forms that flow, merge, and layer, through the manner of their creation. 

Finding beauty in all its forms, translating it as I imagine, into shape and form, and offering it to be part of another’s unique expression.
