Shelley Picot's sculptures and drawings blend narrative, autobiography, magical realism, and comics. She has shown her work in DC, Massachusetts, and Vermont, and will be part of a three-person show at AUTOMAT Collective in Philadelphia in May 2017. Other career highlights include a grant-supported month-long residency at the Vermont Studio Center and participating in Sharon Hayes' Ricerche: three for the Venice Biennale.
