Elizabeth Wolff ~ Penciled Tails
Mixed Media
Jamie Gagarin Community Room and Gallery
Oliver Wolcott Library
On Exhibit: November 3 - December 30, 2016
Elizabeth Wolff will have her artwork on display and for sale in the Oliver Wolcot Library's Jamie Gagarin Community Room and Gallery from November 3- December 30.

 
Elizabeth Wolff’s family is steeped in the arts. Her father, Guy, is a world-class potter; her mother, Erica, is a “Jack of all trades” - from knitter to viol musician; her grandfather, Robert Jay Wolff, was an abstract expressionist from the Bauhaus period; her other grandparent, Donald Warnock, made early period musical instruments (lutes, guitars, and viols); and her grandmother, Serenella Privitera Warnock, was a concert pianist and a gifted Waldorf teacher.
When she was young, Elizabeth had the great fortune of being read to a lot and she endlessly poured through picture books. Her love of stories and curiosity in art gave her the idea of becoming an illustrator of children’s books. She is mostly self taught, except for local classes from a few, dear teachers and plenty of encouragement from her parents, relatives, and friends.
Recently, Elizabeth has taken two short courses in children’s book illustration and book binding at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. She has shown her work in many art shows and has sold pieces to the Yale Center for British Art and The Florence Griswold Museum. She has been invited to contribute a drawing to the New Britain Museum of American Art’s archive of their Connecticut children’s book illustrators. ~ www.owlibrary.org
 
 
“Inviting The Great Dance: 
Paintings On the Path of Letting Go” 
By Elisabeth Moss
Marie Louise Trichet Art Gallery
Wisdom House Retreat and Conference Center
The Marie Louise Trichet Art Gallery at Wisdom House recently opened a new exhibit “Inviting The Great Dance: Paintings On the Path of Letting Go” by Elisabeth Moss. 
 
The exhibit consists of a collection of works combining acrylics and collage. Ms. Moss says she creates by “painting from within” or from intuition and the resulting symbols reflected on canvas represent the artist’s deepening attunement to the Divine.  These “painted prayers” are often inspired by a multitude of artists, indigenous, tribal art and children’s art.  Learn more.
