"To Celebrate Color"

Elaine Weaver Artist

In 2009 Elaine Weaver began studying the art and lives of Master Artists, joined the Asian Art Association and took art classes at the Castle Rock Senior Center. It was after attending the Denver Art Museum’s exhibit in 2011 of the modern Chinese artist Xu Beihong that Weaver became intensely interested in making art an avocation. Photos she took while visiting Japan have been her most recent inspiration. This exhibit is Elaine's first public showing.

"Whatever subjects I choose for my pictures, celebrating color is always first in my mind”, says Elaine.

Prints and prices available upon request from the artist directly.

Enjoy Elaine's exhibit from June 3rd through July 6th. The public is invited to attend her artist reception on Sunday, July 5th from 1:30 - 3:30 PM.
