Elena Sisto: New Work

February 5 through March 22, 2008

Elena Sisto, a painter and an avid teacher of art, will display her new work at the museum. Hearne Pardee of Artzine writes of Elena’s work: “Over her career, Sisto has consistently explored her own emotions projected into surrogate figures—first into cartoon characters and then into more naturalistically rendered figures.... There is a social confrontation, not merely with the character portrayed, who engages our immediate attention, but with the artist at work.... We continually examine the protagonists, but also develop an awareness of the layers of meaning involved in that silent interaction.”
