Shantell painting

Katerina Shantell adjusts one of her paintings before the gallery at the Marion Civic Theatre opens. This is Shantell’s debut in a gallery setting.

Katerina Shantell was excited for the Marion Civic Theatre (MCT) to open Thursday evening, as the planned art gallery was the first time she has ever displayed her art in a gallery setting.

“I’m really excited and I’m really thankful that [Fusion Arts Alliance Program Director] Andrew [Daniels] has pestered me to the point of submission,” said Shantell. “Not that it was a complicated matter. I’m a procrastinator. Plus I love the theater, so for this to be my debut is super exciting.”
