Nevertheless She Persisted: Mixed Media Works by Elissa Farrow Savos

Nevertheless She Persisted: Mixed Media Works by Elissa Farrow Savos

Nov 1st – Nov 28th, 2017
Opening Reception: Friday, November 3rd, 2017: 6:00pm-9:00pm

Please join Charlene Newsom and Elissa Farrow Savos to celebrate the opening of her newest exhibition.

Elissa Farrow Savos, a sculptor who lives in Sterling, Virginia, has been exhibiting at Gallery C since 2014. Her figurative sculptures are made with polymer clay bodies mounted to found objects. The low-fired polymer clay is then painted with layers of oil paint.

“Every piece I make is about storytelling, each a narrative of some woman    somewhere, and every woman everywhere. My head is full of the reasons and meanings behind each piece – usually a convoluted combination of a very specific experience with a myriad of emotions and thoughts and opinions that could be many, many words, but instead is this one piece, or maybe two.

There are common themes, such as physical, emotional, and spiritual burdens, connections lost and found, love and anger, dignity and strength. Meanwhile, they keep company with rusty chains, weathered wood, decaying bones, abandoned objects, and scraps of fabric – the debris of life, lived. My women are the same, they show their scars and wear them proudly because after all, they make a good story, if nothing else.” — Elissa Farrow Savos
