ELLIPSE ARTS CENTER
OPEN WEAVING WITH ELIZABETH MORISETTE
Arlington Public School Students add to Elizabeth Morisette's Looming Loom. Fabric, rubber bands, and toothbrushes are just a few of the items that bring the work of art to vibrant life. Free to decorate as they saw fit, these creative kids just had to remember four things...over under, over under!
"ART & HEALING" SEMINAR WITH RICHARD BAY
Junkyard artist Richard Bay, Assistant Professor of Art Education at Radford University, workes with Arlington County Art Teachers.
FROM THE JUNKYARD TO THE FRONTYARD OPENING RECEPTION
Ellipse Arts Center openned From the Junkyard to the Frontyard, an exhibit that will help redefine our conception of junk, on Thursday. According to Director/Curator Cynthia Connolly "although we often assume there is only the one common use for everything manufactured, this exhibit exposes the ingenuity of five artists who take found, free or very inexpensive materials and transform them into beautiful peices of art, rendering the "junk" unrecognizable in the process."
