PRESS RELEASE: "Intuitive Color: Recent Paintings by Elizabeth Allen" at Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery, Shelburne

Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery will be showing "Intuitive Color: Recent Paintings by Elizabeth Allen", beginning with an opening reception for the public on Friday, August 19th, 5:30-7:30. The exhibit will run through September 20th.
A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Elizabeth Allen participated in the European Honors Program in Rome, Italy, and the Art Students League of New York with artists Ted Jacobs David Leffell and Nelson Shanks. She currently resides in Williston.
Her work had been exhibited in many juried shows including the Hudson Valley Art Association. Influenced by the Luminists, Elizabeth aims to “capture the soul of the landscape. I find the scenes I want to paint in the early hours of the day as the mist envelopes the land and in the twilight hours when the colors created by the setting sun spread across the landscape in a rainbow of unexpected color.”
The work in this exhibition explores the Vermont landscape with a recent concentration on the bucolic meadows of Shelburne Farms.

Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery is located at 86 Falls Road, in Shelburne Village. Hours are Tue-Fri 9:30-5:30, and Sat 10-5.
