Artist Statement

Sharon Coulson Downes is a fourth-generation painter who graduated from Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia, PA. She is a member of the Muse Art Gallery Collective in the Old City District where she is acting Director. Sharon is presently working on her newest series entitled “Oaxaca; Last Days” inspired by her December visit to the city. The stark light and shadow in the architectural landscape invoke a flat-footed honesty that spoke to a great personal loss that was facing Sharon at the time.

The series, “Oaxaca; Last Days”, will be showing at Muse Gallery for the month of August, 2018.
