I have featured a lot of artists on here for you folks, but here is the first one i have the pleasure to know in person... presenting ms. treva elwood for your viewing delight. not only does treva paint her family's photographs - an heirloom made from a heirloom! - with a heart as big as cuba, but she paints with a palette so bold only a well-tuned artist could pull it off. background textures and vintage patterns add just enough vague reminiscence to flesh out a feeling of familiarity even though you've never met the subjects.
yep - she can do all that, and be the very finest and funnest human being there is walking around on two dance-y feet. if you are in the Baltimore area, please make a trip down to
Jordan Faye Contemporary
1401 Light Street
between 6 and 9 tonight, February 4th, for their opening for three artists - the lovely ms. elwood included.
can't get enough? more of her goodness here.
