Ellyn Weiss "Time of War" Series Opens June 2

We are pleased to announce that Ellyn Weiss, whose Circular Reasoning exhibit last fall was very well received, will display a new series of prints that she made last summer in Provincetown.

The series, entitled Time of War, features 14" x 14" monoprints that Ellyn created at the Fine Arts Work Center in P-town on a press that was once used by Robert Motherwell.

Ellyn describes them as "meditations on the pain of war, as simple and universal as I can make them - my effort to convey feeling directly witha minimum of complexity.

Regardless of one's views about the justness of the current wars, or of war in general, the prints are poignant reminders that war is misery for those who are caught in the middle of it--soldier and civilian alike

We will host an opening reception for this new exhibition (which will be displayed in the rear gallery--Joan Belmar's works occupy the front gallery) on Saturday, June 2, from 5:00 p.m until 8:00 p.m. Ellyn will be here to answer questions. Please join us to celebrate with Ellyn one last time before she returns to the Cape for the rest of the summer.

There is also time to catch Ellyn's show at Touchstone, which closes June 3.
