I’m enough of an artist to draw freely on my imagination, which I think is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.
Art builds bridges of understanding, invites critical thinking, and draws us together to examine our world with an open and curious mind. The Elder Gallery of Contemporary Art believes that through the experience of art, communities can connect, share experiences, and engage in dialogue.
We represent a robust variety of contemporary artists, with a strong emphasis on fine glass art and paintings. Our artists use their talent to interpret the world around them in ways both beautiful and challenging. Their works have meaning. Through their chosen mediums, our artists tell stories that broaden our perspective and foster understanding. They help us to make sense of our world.
The arts connect us to the past, confront us with our present, and summon us to face our future. The Elder Gallery of Contemporary Art welcomes everyone to experience the power of art. Even those among us who cannot put oil to canvas, carve stone into shape or coax molten glass into sculpture can appreciate and learn from the artist’s interpretation of the human experience. At their best, the arts strike a universal chord that suggests that we are not alone in our human experience.
