What is this Project All About?


A group of professional artists has decided to share some of their artworks with non-profit organizations that are doing good work in their home state of Vermont and beyond its borders. They donate these artworks to shelters, environmental organizations, educational institutions, and many other kinds of non-profits. We call this project EMBRACING ART because we want other people doing important work to embrace the value of art and the contribution it can make to the environment in which they work, and also because we seek to reach out and support / embrace the endeavors of others who are doing significant work that serves the public good.
To find artists whose work is available, read the Frequently Asked Questions in the righthand column and then scroll down and click on an artist to see their available work.

Elizabeth Nelson

About the Artist: Elizabeth Nelson works in her studio located in rural Northern Vermont. The surrounding landscape is the inspiration for her paintings in a multitude of media. To learn more about the artist visit www.elizabethnelsonstudio.com.

In this series of paintings, I have incorporated a photograph (actually an archival print of a photograph) into the center of each painting and then expanded the image outward. Sometimes the painting reflects a realistic account of the rest of the scene, and sometimes it is an imagined expansion.
