I am happy to announce that I have a solo show next month, entitled Life and Color, in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The fact that the show will be hung in just over two weeks' time makes this piece's "work in progress" status somewhat nerve-wracking. Posting it here is my way of adding a bit more pressure on myself to have it finished, varnished, and framed in time for hanging! I am excited about showing it as a newly finished piece. It will be the largest in the show, at 24 by 36 inches. Here are the show details.
The Gateway Gallery at Great Bay Community College
New England artist Elizabeth Patterson
September 16th - November 15th
The Gateway Gallery at Great Bay Community College is honored to feature the work of New England artist Elizabeth Patterson from September 16-November 15, 2014 in a show entitled, Life and Color. Her work has been widely acclaimed and featured in exhibitions across the country as well as in books and magazines. She grew up in Burlington, Massachusetts and attended Massachusetts College of Art and the University of Southern Maine. The colored pencil drawings of Elizabeth Patterson are richly and lovingly rendered, with layer upon layer of color, to create finished works that are often mistaken for oil paintings. This collection includes still lives and portraits in glowing hues; the subjects brightly lit by the sun, and the cast shadows becoming important parts of each composition.
Please join us for an opening reception on September 16, 5-7 PM.
The gallery is located in the atrium entrance of Great Bay Community College and is open during regular college operating hours. Please sign the guest book when you come and visit.
Information on each artist and their work can be found in the gallery.
For more information on the exhibit or the reception contact Annette Cohen at (603) 427-7665 email@example.com All visitors to the Gallery are encouraged to sign the guest book. The Gallery is open during regular college hours and is free to the public.
