Explore Themes of Earth, Fire, Water, and Air at This Exhibit Based on the Elements

Kick-off your new year with an eyeful of beautiful art! On Saturday, January 18th, Gallery 1261 is proud to present Adrienne Stein’s solo exhibition, “Elementals.” The newest body of work by this Colorado/Pennsylvania figurative artist explores the four elements: Earth, Fire, Water, and Air. Don’t miss it this weekend at Gallery 1261!

The title of Adrienne Stein’s first solo exhibit is derived from the Renaissance concept of the four elements being embodied in mythic beings known as Elementals. The paintings in this show depict figures that correspond with the elements of Earth, Fire, Water, and Air. The works in this exhibition will be mostly small, ranging from 5”x7” to 12’x16’. Each is a meditation on color and nature.

Adrienne Stein is an award-winning artist living and working in Colorado and Pennsylvania. She holds an MFA from Boston University and a BFA Magna Cum Laude from Laguna College of Art & Design. Adrienne studied under many gifted and influential instructors throughout the United States, France, and Italy.

Stein’s work reanimates historical painting genres, forming a bridge to the present with fresh insight and imagery. The worlds she paints are inhabited by figures, folklore, archetypes, and natural elements that are fueled by a sense of the personal as well as universal myth. Close friends and family members are reinterpreted in lush and magical environments that form the nexus between reality and fantasy, expressed through an unconscious world of symbolic imagery.

Stein has received numerous awards from organizations such as The Portrait Society of America, The Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation, and The Art Renewal Center. Her work is collected in the U.S. and abroad. Start your Saturday with beautiful artwork! Check out “Elementals” on display at Gallery 1261 until February 1, 2020.
