Fine paintings by Arizona Artist Ellen Nemetz
Opening April 21, 2017 6pm to 9pm
Ellen Nemetz’s latest series of paintings is a study in reflections. Using oil and acrylic paints, she captures the movement and beauty of natural waterways. These contemporary, representational works use color to communicate the moods of water, as well as the effect this essential resource has on human emotions. Nemetz does not merely capture the water reflections, she captures the human reflections. With color, rhythm and line, she encourages and represents our personal immersion in the meditative yet energetic wonder of streams, rivers, and lakes.
Born in rural Minnesota in 1961, Ellen was the youngest of seven children growing up on a small dairy farm. In her adult life she has lived in New Zealand, Wisconsin, Florida, Denmark, Germany and now in Phoenix, Arizona. Although Ellen always enjoyed drawing and painting as a child, she studied Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Madison, Wisconsin. Until her move to Arizona, Ellen was a self-taught artist. Her formal art education has all occurred at the Maricopa County Community Colleges where she has twice received the League of Innovation Award. Ellen’s works are in public and private collections in Europe and throughout the United States.
