Member Spotlight Elisa Vanelli — Deep Blue
Wednesday, June 28, 2023 – Sunday, July 9, 2023
Newburyport, MA – Newburyport Art (NAA) presents Deep Blue, a member spotlight exhibition by Elisa Vanelli. Her work is inspired by her love and connection with animals that come to life through her work. Elisa’s exhibition is the latest installment of the Member Spotlight Series in the NAA’s Mural Gallery, a space encompassing the hallway and staircase from the first-floor Sargent Gallery to the Hartson Gallery on the second floor.
Elisa made her first sculpture in 2019, and has since dedicated herself to her sculptural work. Her work aims to raise awareness about protecting wildlife and preserving the natural habitats of the creatures she depicts. Her sculptures have their own unique energy.
Join Elisa for a Meet-the-Artist event on Saturday, July 1st from 3:00pm–5:00pm. Stay to enjoy the opening reception (5:00pm–7:00pm) for the NAA’s Watercolor Interest Group exhibition Coloring Our World, which is on view in the first floor Sargent and Hills Galleries concurrent with Elisa’s Spotlight. Also showing is Life Drawing / The Figure upstairs in the Hartson Gallery.
The galleries are free and open to the public Tuesday through Saturday from 11:00am–5:00pm and Sunday from 1:00pm–5:00pm. Please note that on Friday, July 7th the galleries are open for extended hours until 7pm. Newburyport Art is closed on Mondays. The ground-floor Hills Gallery has an accessible entrance.
