Shirley Hazlett hails from the San Francisco Bay Area and particularly loves art that abstractly captures the feeling of a place, a point of view, or a fleeting memory. She explores this in her artwork: paintings in water media, on silk, paper, or canvas.
Hazlett has shown paintings at the Crocker Art Museum, The California Museum, the Shoshana Wayne Gallery in Santa Monica, ArtSpace in British Columbia, KB Gallery in Oregon, Root Division and the Diego Rivera Gallery, both in San Francisco, Davis’ Pence Gallery, Axis Gallery, Shimo Center for the Arts, ARTHOUSE, Tim Collom Gallery, and the Temporary Contemporary in Sacramento
Her work is held in public collections including Kaiser Hospital and the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center, where four of her acrylic on silk paintings are in the main lobby.
Shirley has had a lifelong interest in the arts. She was the self-appointed family photographer at age 7, with a prized Brownie Starflash Camera, and from that age forward pursued art in college, ultimately completing an MFA in Painting, with Honors, at the San Francisco Art Institute. Shirley also holds a BA in Art History and a BA in Art Studio from Sac State.
