Sybil Godwin - Gallery Owner
Sybil Godwin recently moved back to the city where she was born and raised, and has brought with her over 14 years of experience in the art world. She attended North Carolina State University, and, upon graduating, moved straight to Atlanta to begin her career in galleries. Sybil worked in galleries in Atlanta for close to ten years, and moved to Charlotte in 2013. She became owner of Shain Gallery in 2017 after almost five years as Gallery Director, and continues to cultivate relationships with artists and clients within Charlotte and across the country. She is always keeping an eye out for up and coming, emerging artists and loves having the opportunity to support her artists and witness their work finding forever homes. As owner, her goals for the gallery are to continue supporting the Charlotte art community and keep connecting her clients with the perfect pieces of art.
Sybil is married to Bill, and has two daughters under the age of three.
Eli Cordell - Gallery Manager
Eli Cordell was born and raised in Charlotte, NC and received a BA in Art History from the College of Charleston. After having the opportunity to travel and visit the arts and cultures on which she focused her studies, she moved back to Charlotte to pursue a career that would allow her to combine her love of art with her desire to contribute to the ever-expanding art network in her native city. After beginning at Shain Gallery in March of 2017, she became Gallery Manager in the Fall of 2017. As someone who has always found her own home and office more welcoming with the right works of art on the walls, Eli enjoys working with clients to find the perfect pieces to complete their own space.
