Varieties of Expression, a new exhibit by Alexis Elza, opens on Friday, August 10 from 5:30 to 8 p.m.
Working in a variety of media Alexis Elza creates delicate works on paper, canvas, and wood, combining abstract imagery with references to illusory experience rather than literal representation, while her fabric pieces embrace constructions in which materiality are central to the work.
Alexis Elza lives and works in Woodland Park, Colorado. She has combined her skills in historic restoration and the visual arts for more than twenty-five years. Alexis studied at the School of the Worcester Art Museum and Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts. After completing her studies she pursued a career in preservation and conservation of historic architecture in New England, all while continuing her work as a studio artist. Alexis was part of a team of specialists that worked to restore historic sites, including but not
limited to, the Senate President’s Office in the Massachusetts State House, Boston; Chateau Sur-Mer, Newport, Rhode Island; and Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, Miami, Florida. Alexis has also exhibited in many group and solo shows in New England and Colorado.
