Mandie Shattuck aka Madge Midgely, is the featured artist at Blue Raven Brewery for the October 7th First Friday Artwalk.
Mandie is a multimedia artist who is drawn to color, texture and experimentation. Her work is inspired by the internal spiritual journey leading to themes of death and rebirth. Not impressed by the modern business aspects of art commerce, she works specifically in originals and believes that original artwork should be accessible to people of all income tiers. She accommodates her audience by using the tagged price of her art as a suggestion, leaving the buyer freedom to pay more, knowing the value of the piece is more than the tag. This allows those with the budget and desire to own an original to pay more than list price showing their appreciation to the artist through equitable commerce. “Buying art isn’t about getting a steal of a deal- it’s about supporting artists and creative environments.”
