Due to the impending forecast, WITF's Art in the Atrium Reception with Shelly Lipscomb originally scheduled for February 7 has been postponed.

 The Artist Reception has been rescheduled for Wednesday, February 21 from 5-7pm at the WITF Public Media Center in Harrisburg.

Shelly (Lipscomb) Echeverria is an illustrator, still-life, landscape and portrait painter. She builds her inspiration from places traveled, nature, and family.

Shelly holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and makes her home in Central Pennsylvania. Her paintings hang in the Pennsylvania State Capitol, medical offices, and restaurants in the central Pennsylvania region.

On painting; "I paint because I must! Making art brings me peace. I can lose myself for hours while I'm painting. It's what my soul was created to do. I love people and am intrigued by them. This is why portraiture is my favorite work. In my portraits, I try to capture the personality of the individual looking beyond skin tones and features. I was inspired to look back into nature after a visit to the Hershey Gardens. I am intrigued by color and prefer to use bold and vibrant palettes." 

Shelly self-published a book "So they say I have Breast Cancer" to inspire others going through life altering challenges. Currently, she is working on a series of children's picture books with Bena Hartman Books.

The Artist's reception will be held from 5-7pm on Wednesday, February 21. This is a free event but RSVP is required for planning purposes.
