"In The Garden" exhibit

Our Inaugural Exhibit, 'in the garden', featured Elissa's drawings and paintings, inspired by her own extensive garden in Wenham.
The Grand Opening was July 19th, and hosted a gathering of friends, family, and locals, including many area artists, interested in future Open-Calls to exhibit.
Elissa's intense drawings and focused details are rendered in her signature 'waxed' prisma pencils on Bristol paper. The medium cannot be smudged or erased...demanding that every touch be definitive. Although many viewed the work as obsessively realistic, the result of her singular focus is a virtual abstraction of reality.
Della-Piana's waxed pencil works and Gouaches are also on display and for sale in our 2nd Floor Gallery throughout the year.
