Elaine Clayton, Earth Changes: Pole Shift/Amplitude 2

Elaine Clayton is a Westport painter whose artwork explores spiritual, intuitive themes in both abstract and figurative forms. She is also the author of books in the mind-body-spirit genre:  “Making Marks: Discover the Art of Intuitive Drawing” and “Illuminara Intuitive Journal,” and author and illustrator of many  books for children. She has two new books,  “A Little Bit of Angels,” and “A Little Bit of Fairies.”

Her new painting series is in this show, Earth Changes: Pole Shift. She says it is “an exploration of our polarized times as we witness great extremes in nature through weather events, earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, etc. and not only in nature, but in human nature. My intent is for the art to call us to harmony in the chaos and to highlight that rather than being extremely polarized as a nation or as individuals, we can survive the times best through conscious awareness and choosing harmony. The work is influenced by the prophetic words of Native American tribes who long ago predicted these times, and more recently by the 20th Century seer and healer, Edgar Cayce.”

Alice Katz is a Fairfield psychotherapist, teacher, author, and artist. She is the author of “”It’s Not Personal! a Guide to Anger Management” and two books on compulsive eating. She has taught has taught classes on both subjects and on art.  

Alice has been making art her entire life using fabric, paper, paint, and found objects to create papier mache sculptures, wall hangings, paintings, collages, and photomontages. Her work has been shown in many galleries and museums in Connecticut and is in private collections in Connecticut, New York, and Massachusetts. It was featured several times on cable television. She is the Program Chair of the Fairfield County Arts Association and is a curator for the Bruce S. Kershner Gallery.

This show includes her acrylic paintings, cut paper assemblages, and papier mache sculptures, all of animals.  She says, “I love and admire animals and I want people to see that even fierce ones have unique features and are beautiful. My focus is also on creating a pleasing and interesting composition with the color, shapes, and texture of each animal.”
