Artist Elisabeth Condon with her work.
Interlochen Arts Academy is pleased to announce a one-month exhibition of selected works by American painter Elisabeth Condon.
Condon’s works were on display in the gallery of Dow Center for Visual Arts from Oct. 23 through Nov. 16. The gallery opening was held on Oct. 19 at 6:30 p.m.
In addition to her gallery opening, Condon also worked with Interlochen Arts Academy students during the week prior.
“I have been privileged to know Elisabeth for eight years -- as a painter and mentor,” said Instructor of Visual Arts Megan Hildebrandt. “I am so, so thrilled that we have her here working with our students this week. She is an electric force in the studio, and the way she talks about her work ignites passion in whoever is lucky enough to be there. It is my greatest hope that as many citizens of Northern Michigan can visit Interlochen to see her exhibition in the next month!”
Condon, a Los Angeles native, currently lives and works in New York City. Her work reinterprets the traditional Chinese concepts of balance through a modern lens using disparate paint applications, a variety of materials and the pour as a central theme. Condon is the recipient of numerous awards, including the 2015 New York Pulse Prize and the New York Studio School Alumni Association's Mercedes Matter Award. Her work is held in collections including the U.S. Embassy, Perez Museum Miami and JP Morgan / Chase Art Collection, among others.
