The witf Media Center will be displaying the work of Shelly Lipscomb Echeverria through June 18th during business hours at 4801 Lindle Road in Harrisburg, PA. A free wine and cheese reception will be held on Friday, May 11 from 5-7 p.m. This reception is open to the public!

This is the first time her series “So, they say I Have Breast Cancer” is being exhibited.

A graduate of Central Dauphin High School in Harrisburg, Echeverria holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. She is an employee of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and resides in Harrisburg with her Husband and children.

Reflecting on her work, Shelly says "I paint because I must. Making art brings me peace. I can lose myself for hours while I am painting. It’s what my soul was created to do."

A variety of her other paintings are also on display including a series she completed after a trip to her husband’s native El Salvador in 2009.
