Artists in Residence: Linda Elksnin
September 6 @ 10:00 am - September 12 @ 5:00 pmFree
Free art shows in Blowing Rock! Meet different High Country artists each week and buy original art directly. This week: Linda Elksnin, Watercolor, Acrylic and Mixed Media.
Linda’s colorful, whimsical paintings are inspired by eclectic sources such as textiles, self-taught and outsider artists, and mainstream artists such as Mark Rothko, Romare Bearden and Marc Chagall. She incorporates symbols, shapes, and subject matter from a variety of cultures, including those of the American South, Appalachia, and Haiti, as well as the aboriginal people of Panama and Australia. Linda uses a variety of media (acrylic, watercolor, gouache, color pencil, pastel) to work on paper, canvas, and wood. Whether abstract or loosely based on reality, the common thread of all her work is color and graphically pleasing design. Her work is often described as whimsical and happy. Want to see art to make you smile? Come meet Linda this week at Edgewood Cottage in Blowing Rock.
