Joan Elliott

A New Day

November 4 – December 23, 2016

Opening Reception
Friday, November 4
7 – 9 pm

Exhibiting in the upstairs gallery, Joan Elliott presents recent paintings inspired by Moorish designs seen on her trips to Spain. Expanding on
her previous style, which involved loosely depicted landscapes dictated by color and light theories, Elliott incorporates a geometric flare into her new techniques.
The resulting paintings exist as both delicate and powerful, natural, and densely graphic objects.

Elliott has taught at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts for over 25 years, currently living and working in Richmond, VA. She received her BFA in painting
from Virginia Commonwealth University (1978).
