I stopped by Matteawan Gallery in Beacon yesterday to check out Ellen
Siebers’ winsome show before it closes on Sunday. Siebers paints an assortment of objects from memory, some recognizable and some not, on a small scale and using neutral color, recalling the
simplicity of Shaker design. “With every moment our limitations and
visual processes force us to
link together a series of images, perspectives and perceptual
phenomena,” Siebers says. “Everything begins to feel like mythology.”

Ellen Siebers, C.I.T.S., 2015, mixed media, gesso, paint, 6.5 x 6.5 inches. This mysterious lone object on the wall completes a charming show. I recommend a road trip to Beacon this weekend!
“Ellen Siebers: Soft Nails,” Mattaewan Gallery, Beacon, NY. through April 5, 2015.
NOTE: My solo show at Matteawan opens on Saturday May 9–save the date!
