Kay Elsasser Painting in Show at Art League, Alexandria

This beautiful watercolor by Kay Elsasser was accepted in the December juried show at the Art League in Alexandria, Virginia. I think it says a lot about Kay’s talent that out of 558 pieces submitted for the exhibit, only 66 were selected by the juror. Of course, we in the Wednesday Studio already knew that about Kay’s talent.

The show’s juror was Robert Yi of George Washington University, where he is the director of the Corcoran Continuing Arts Education Program. He is offering a talk about the show’s entries this Saturday, December 17, at 2 pm.

Yi spoke of his general approach to art in an interview with Erica Fortwengler, the Art League’s communication director. Yi emphasized that the artist’s individual vision and creativity are what make a piece. He said, “What is it about a piece that makes you stop and look? It could be the creativity and content of the piece, the amazing technical ability of the artist, or something dramatic and impactful such as color.”

The exhibit is on display through December 31 at the Torpedo Factory Art Center, 105 North Union Street, Alexandria, VA.

Congratulations, Kay!

    Ominous! Very appropriate for these times. I’m referring to wild weather due to climate change, not to politics. It’s way too beautiful to have anything to do with politics. Congratulations.
