Once again, in July I had the great fortune of being invited to spend 2 weeks at an informal artists residency in Woodstock, NY. I arrived completely spent from having put up yet another show at Purume Gallery where I’ve been curating a variety of art exhibits, putting up and taking down a 2-person show at St Francis College with my wonderful painter friend Mary K. Connelly, painting and delivering 6 new paintings for the annual Windham Fine Arts plein air exhibit (see post below), working on my apartment building’s garden, and the rest of my life! After a couple of days in recovery, I went out and painted a few studies, oil on paper:

It was so much fun working alongside the stream, that I ended up turning this study into an 18″x24″ painting:

This lead to inspiration for another finished painting done from nearby:

These were fine mornings – quiet, except for the burbling of the stream behind me, the sun filtered by all the trees that managed to take root in the rocky stream bank, and a nice breeze keeping everything cool.  Until around 11:30 when all the families or camp groups descended to swim in the large swimming hole nearby.

To see more sketches from this escape, visit my Facebook page: www.facebook.com/ellayangstudio (you don’t have to be a FB member to view the page). I’ll add more here, too…. eventually!

It helps that I’m curating the shows at Purume Gallery – I am able to put my own work into exhibitions whenever I can. So, the truth is out! The next show which we will be hanging tomorrow features four of us who paint our hometown with great affection and energy. Except for Little Owl Cafe, which is a restaurant in the West Village, the rest of my paintings will be Brooklyn views. The other three artists will have paintings of Coney Island and Manhattan. My friend Ticia’s paintings are almost exclusively of Greenwich Village views. This exhibit is likely to be popular. Hope you’ll stop by!

I have four paintings in a group show at Purume Gallery, 11 East 13th Street, NYC (yes, in Manhattan!). The exhibition is called Landscape Re-Imagined, and it showcases the work of four artists whose work is inspired by or evocative of landscape.  The exhibition will be up through April 29. Be sure to stop by the Artists’ Reception on Wednesday, April 6, 6-8 pm to meet the artists and enjoy the artwork. All the artwork is for sale; credit cards accepted!
