Artist Reception
Lisa Ellison: “Don’t Fence Me In”

Add to your calendar
Date: September 15, 5:30 pm
Location: Center for the Arts Crested Butte
Details: “Don’t Fence Me In” is a summation of painter Lisa Ellison’s idea of the artist’s life. She shuns restrictions and boundaries while embracing freedom, spontaneity and following her muse. In this vein, she gravitates towards painting the natural world in all its abundance - be it still life or plein air. Her aim is to share with you the rare beauty of the natural world, as seen through her eyes.

Opening Reception: Saturday, September 15. 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Free
