Shelley Spector’s world – gallerist, artist, teacher, entrepreneur – next up on our artblog radio podcast series

It was warm outside when we interviewed Shelley Spector back on July 27 in her studio in her Bella Vista home. Spector founded the influential Spector Gallery on 6th and Bainbridge in 1999, and that space, which closed in 2006, was a launching pad for a lot of young Philadelphia artists, like Jim Houser, Adam Wallacavage, Andrew Jeffrey Wright, Rebecca Westcott, and Rob Matthews. Shelley is an artist, educator and curator who has always been entrepreneurial too.  For many years she showed her work at Sande Webster Gallery.  In February she will have her debut exhibit at Bridgette Mayer Gallery. In this clip from our interview she talks about growing up as a dancer and the effect that has on her art work. You can hear the full episode next week. And check out this video about her work.
