Reception for Kristi Baughman and Heloise Shilstat at Rotunda Dec. 13


The Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation Cultural Arts division and the Murfreesboro Art Committee announce the reception for artists Kristi Baughman and Heloise Shilstat. The reception will be held Dec. 13, 2019, in the City Hall Rotunda from 6-9 p.m. as part of the Boro Art Crawl in downtown Murfreesboro.

“We are delighted to feature the Quilt Paintings and Paper Mosaics of these two unique local artisans,” said Cultural Arts Assistant Program Coordinator Lisa Browning. “Kristi Baughman and Heloise Shilstat display a strong passion for art-making through their expressions from everyday materials—fabrics and paper, to create delightful designs and colors.”

Kristi Baughman’s work combines painterly qualities with her first creative love, quilting. Her current work is inspired by her everyday environment. Instead of paint, she expresses her perception of sight and experience in bits of batik fabric and stitched threads. Her works are a delightful display of color, form and texture.

Heloise Shilstat’s multi-faceted works of art, Paper Mosaics, are constructed from cut or torn pieces of glossy magazine pages, resulting in the look of beautifully detailed stained glass. Each piece is intricately placed giving her design a whimsical and deeply textured feel. To learn more about Paper Mosaics, visit

The artists’ work is on display in the Rotunda of City Hall Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

The Boro Art Crawl returns to downtown Murfreesboro Friday, Dec. 13. The December event features venues in and around downtown Murfreesboro, including the City Hall Rotunda. The Art Crawl is held from 6-9 p.m., featuring local and regional artists. For more information on the Boro Art Crawl, visit
