Sally Shapiro was born in 1947 in Stockton, California. Her first drawing was published in a Children’s magazine when she was 18 months old. As a child she studied piano and ballet; she was talented at both but age 14 she discovered her need to paint and do sculpture. She saw Rodin’s work in San Francisco and knew this is what she wanted to do.

In ‘87’ she took figure sculpture from Steve Kaltenbach and ended up with her first bronze commission, “Agelessness,” a life size sculpture featured at the California State University Sacramento Children’s Center.

In 2003 the Lengyel Monument created by Sally was installed on Main Street in Georgetown, California. In 1997 Sally was asked to open an art gallery in Georgetown. “The Gallery” was a vehicle for her and other local artists to develop their work. Between 1997 and 2005 Sally showcased sculptures at Trilogy Gallery in Placerville California and “Image 13” Gallery in San Francisco. After 2005 she moved to Sacramento where she began casting “Woman in a Man’s World” for display at the Art Foundry Gallery.

Sally is now a resident artist at Kennedy Gallery, 1931 L Street in Sacramento where she shares some space with her son Davy, an avid photographer and talent in his own right.
