Opening Reception: Friday, September 7th from 6pm - 9pm
Please join Charlene Newsom as we celebrate the mesmerizing work of the late, great Elsie Dinsmore Popkin (1937-2005).
Elsie Dinsmore Popkin was an incredibly talented artist and activist who consistently enriched her compositions with a sense of vitality. Popkin lived in Winston-Salem, NC where she worked predominately with pastels. Popkin was well known for her verdant and vivid landscapes. Her proclivity for pastels enabled her to explore light and intensity of color in a way that gave life to the paper she worked on. Her ardent appreciation of nature is so apparent in her work that it inspires an almost spiritual pull to the outdoors.
This show focuses primarily on works that were painted during her extensive travels. Scenes depicted include Tokyo, Santorini, Alaska and more.
