She has a colorful variety of pieces including several personal works with a Jewish connection and some with contemporary secular themes. The gallery is open to visitors weekdays 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and by special appointment.

Shelley Mangold is a teaching artist, renting studio space in Studios North in Knoxville’s Fourth and Gill neighborhood, per her biography at the Arts & Culture Alliance. She has a bachelor’s in art from Adelphi University and a master’s in curriculum and instruction from the University of Tennessee.

A long-time potter and former public school elementary art teacher in Knox and Jefferson counties, she now teaches adult mixed media and alcohol ink techniques and occasional kids art classes. Her work has been shown locally at The Emporium, Arts in the Airport, A1LabArts, Fountain City Art Center, TVUU Church, Temple Beth El Gallery and Broadway Studios.

Mangold writes: My work has always been eclectic and diverse, owing to my many interests and travels. I enjoy creating art papers to layer with paints and inks to bring back a memory or set a mood. Always a student, I love learning from other artists and the great outdoors. It’s important to me to borrow from reality to convey a sense of time and place in both my representational and abstract works of art.
