tEllen Priest’s Jazz Series of Paintings at the Delaware Division of the Arts

Share

Music has often inspired painting. In the case of artist Ellen Priest of Wilmington, that music is jazz. You can see a solo show of her work at the Delaware Division of the Arts Mezzanine Gallery in Wilmington March 1-29. A division Individual Artist Fellow in Painting, Priest’s Jazz Series works, begun in 1990, layer interesting papers—vellum, watercolor stock—with drawing and painting to capture the joy and energy of the music. Influenced by abstract expressionists such as Paul Cezanne, Priest says, “One sees a painting through a painting.” See for yourself what she means. (577-8278, artsdel.org)
