Shaila Tenorio will be the new artist-in-residence at Confluence Gallery and Art Center in Twisp, and will have a solo exhibit of her work from March 4 to April 15, 2017.
Tenorio will receive three months of studio space on the second floor of the gallery.
She is a self-taught painter working primarily on canvas in oils. According to a Confluence press release, her favorite muses are the horse friends she has lived with and grown up with since childhood.
Tenorio’s intention for the residency focuses on her relationship with horses, in particular a wild mustang she owns that was “wild trapped” in Oregon in 2011.
Tenorio was born in Washington, grew up in the Okanogan Highlands and currently lives in Carlton. She has been exhibiting her art since 2010, primarily in Washington and California.
