OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, July 12, 5:00 - 8:00PM
Shorthand presents Elizabeth Gilfilen’s lively oil paintings in her first solo exhibition at Reynolds Gallery. This exhibition conveys Gilfilen’s passion for the abstracted form – sometimes tree-like, other times figurative – which she builds through washy paint applications against feathery strokes. Her color compositions further push each painting’s mood as varied greys establish a quiet hum and rich corals emanate poppy energy.
The Brooklyn-based painter received her BFA in Drawing and Painting from D.A.A.P. at the University of Cincinnati and her MFA in Painting & Printmaking from VCUarts (1997, 2001).
