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.

Lois Eby

About the Artist: Lois Eby's work has roots in Asian ink painting, improvised music, and Western abstraction. Her paintings are in a variety of public and private collections, including the Vermont State Art Collection and the SUNY Adirondack Art Collection. She is represented by West Branch Gallery & Sculpture Park of Stowe, Vermont (www.westbranchgallery.com ) and by Galerie Maison Kasini of Montreal, Quebec, Canada (http://maisonkasini.com). More about Lois and her work is at www.loiseby.com.

These two works show how the rhythms of music, the energetic line of Asian ink painting, and the colors of Western abstraction combine in my work to create something new.
