Event details

Coinciding with the onset of the holiday shopping season, this gallery show features artworks of all mediums priced at $200 or less. All sales are “cash and carry,” meaning purchasers will get to take the piece with them when they buy it, instead of waiting until the end of the exhibit.

Make supporting local arts top of the list this year by giving a gift that gives back! When you shop local art, you don’t just get an incredible something – you support an incredible someone.

The exhibition will open with a Tacky Holiday themed reception on Thursday, December 1 from 5-7 p.m. Artists who enter a piece into the exhibition will receive two (2) free tickets to the reception. Tickets are $10 for members and $12 for non-members. Get first dibs on the artwork and enjoy the camaraderie as well as light refreshments.

If you are an Alliance member, consider submitting two (2) original 2D or 3D artworks for exhibit in the gallery. Every artwork must be for sale and priced $200 or under.

Member Gallery: Ella Ellis

Ella Materska Ellis is a Polish born artist who graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, receiving a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts and Interior Architecture. She has won numerous awards and has had many one woman shows as well as gallery and group exhibits throughout the world.

Ella’s recent paintings begin with “flowing rivers of color” completed with final touches to accentuate the depth of the piece and the thoughts she’d like to convey. Ella explores the unexplored, visible and invisible… as well as relations between multi-dimensional realities. Her current works reveal her fascination with the origin of existence and her view of the intriguing connection between the vastness of the Universe and the most minute particles of subatomic energy. Colors and directions appear to explode across her canvases revealing underlying messages of joy, gratitude, compassion and spiritual vitality.
