Shelley Reed
Antelope (After Desportes)



Reed's primary focus has been the rich vein of Northern European art from the mid-17th through 18th centuries, a period of enlightenment and profound interest in science, nature, and the animal world. Animals were assigned human traits (peacock:vanity; dog:fidelity), and nature itself was considered a symbol of God's providence - a commonly held belief within the stratified, gentry dominated social order of the time. Reed (b. 1958, New York, NY) lives and works in Boston, MA. She is a recipient of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts Maud Morgan Award and a Pollack-Krasner Foundation Grant. Her work has been widely exhibited in galleries and museums and can be found in public and private collections, including the Boston Museum of Fine Arts; Wellington Management Company, Boston; Fidelity Investment Corporation, Boston; the Hallmark Collection, Kansas City; the Lila Acheson Wallace Collection, Pleasantville, NY; Bank of Boston; the Rose Art Museum, Waltham, MA; Danforth Museum, Framingham, MA; and the deCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, Lincoln, MA.
