Shineman has worked in the art and art history department of the University since the fall of 2009.
“She is an established and accomplished artist and educator,” said Kevin Ledgewood, a public relations professional for the Art Council of Tuscaloosa.
Shineman’s pieces have showcased around the country, including at the Alabama State Council on the Arts Gallery in Montgomery, Alabama, and at the Shore Institute of the Contemporary Arts for the SICA 7th Annual International Exhibition in Long Branch, New Jersey.
“With her connection to the local community and UA, attendance is expected to be plentiful both during the opening of the event and throughout the duration of its display,” he said.
This year, the University awarded Shineman a research grant for the investigation of new painting materials, including organic mediums and powdered pigments.
