Anderson Ranch Arts Center’s reception for the Artistic Directors Exhibition will take place on Tuesday, December 17 during the Holiday Open House from 5 – 6PM.
The event is free and open to the public.
Light refreshments will be served.
The Artistic Directors inspire the Anderson Ranch community both as leaders and artists; their artistic practices and careers are forces that drive the Ranch’s presence in the contemporary art world. In this exhibition, Artistic Directors Andrea Wallace, Liz Ferrill, and Brian Shure present new works in painting and photography.

A native of Seattle, Wash., Elizabeth received her B.F.A. from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, and her M.F.A. from the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence. The use of the stencil resonates deeply within the content of her work, flickering between the beauty found in pattern and a kind of disorienting hypnotic realism. Elizabeth has had solo and two-person exhibitions nationally and internationally including at Planthouse, N.Y.; Harvey Meadows Gallery, Aspen, Colo.; COOP Gallery, Nashville, Tenn.; Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Omaha, Neb.; Backspace, Peoria, Ill.; Artspace, Reno, Nevada, Virginia Tech Armory Gallery, Blacksburg, Va.; and 5x6x9 Gallery, Berlin, Germany.
