“Person and Place” Retrospective by Ellen Gordon Exhibition at Gov’t Center in Stamford

The Girls

“The Girls” by Ellen Gordon

The Mayor’s Gallery will showcase a retrospective of artwork by Ellen Gordon.  The exhibition will feature a selection of figurative collages, drawings and landscapes. Her work is inspired by her drawings from private sessions with her model. The collection on display speaks about the creative magic that happens when inspiration and form collide. The artwork itself is the result of a searching process – finding the shapes and lines in both the figure and the landscape and transcribing those lines into contemporary compositions.

Ellen Gordon’s art training is from the Greenwich Art Society, Silvermine Arts Guild and the Rowayton Arts Centre.   Gordon, a resident of Stamford, holds an undergraduate degree from Boston University and a master’s degree from Baruch College, NYC.

She has exhibited regionally and is the recipient of many awards, including Best in Show 2013 in the 96th Annual Juried Exhibition at the Bendheim Gallery of the Greenwich Arts Center and the 2009 National Faber Birren Color Award Exhibition at the Stamford Art Society as well as the George W. McClellan Award for Watercolor from the Greenwich Arts Society at the Flinn Gallery in 2011.

Ellen Gordon is the President of the Loft Artists Association in Stamford and serves on the board of the Greenwich Art Society. For more about the artist and her work visit www.ellensgordon.com
