"Richard C. Elliott: Works on Paper"

May 10 – July 20, 2014

Study Gallery and Print Study Center

During his lifetime, Dick Elliott created a wide variety of works on paper. The Study Gallery features paintings and prints (and even two sculptures) that were created in the 1980s when he was heavily influenced by Australian Aboriginal art and performance art. The Print Study Center includes prints from the last few years of his life, when he began an almost obsessive exploration of color and pattern in his quest to connect with the primal sources of art.
