DESCRIPTION

EVOKE Contemporary unveils the new work of Louisa McElwain in “oil of joy”. The show is scheduled to open in Santa Fe on Friday, August 5th, 2011 and will run through Tuesday, August 30, 2011. There will be a reception for the artist on Friday, August 5th from 5 – 7pm and the public is invited! 


Louisa McElwain adores summer storms, especially the way the light changes and the clouds dance across the horizon ahead of the rain. Living in the country, 20 miles outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico, Louisa is in tune with the changing weather. If it looks like “one of those days,” she is quick to pack up her pick-up truck and head out to find that “power spot” for what she likes to call “a dialogue with nature.” Once there, she moves quickly, stapling a large canvas to a makeshift easel mounted on the back of the pick-up. The tailgate provides a table for all of her paint – large globs squeezed in strict order from dozens of tubes. With palette knives and masonry trowels of all sizes, including some attached with duck tape to long sticks, she goes to work.

Do not miss this exciting show of new work by Louisa McElwain.  It is a great display revealing a season of exhilarating and highly potent exhibitions of masterful and internationally recognized talent at EVOKE Contemporary!
