Art Display

Risohona StudioApril 2014 – This month we are featuring artist Tami Rishona Ellison. 

Ellison is a photographer with an incredible technique she calls "photage."  "PHOTAGE Art (juxtaposition 2.5D) begins with story - a composition of 3 juxtaposed images...from the serene to the surreal. Photage art is a contemporary visual experience, supremely engaging and evoking "ooh, "aah" and "aha" moments as the mind's eye shifts between multiple perspectives and the hyphenated images once again become confluent to create a unique 3D-like visual illusion in true 2D space."

Visit her online at Fine Art America and Rishona Studios.

Continuing through May 20th:  the Cougar Run 6th graders art will be displayed in the front window.
