Ellen Elmes Book Sale, Signing, & Slide Talk @ Bluefield Library
Jun 11 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Hosted by the Tazewell County Public Library Friends of the Library.

Our Friend, Ellen’s book showcases her years of painting & living in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia and West Virginia. Using imagery and narrative, she weaves the story of how her life, her art, & living in the mountains have become so appreciatively entwined.

Ellen Elmes  will give a PowerPoint slide presentation that will run no longer than 30 minutes. Every two or three slides will show details of a mural or examples of watercolors that resulted from a story I tell, She will show examples of her work and read excerpts from  Appalachian Labyrinth: Painting to the Center. These stories relate to such topics as: how I first came from northern New Jersey to the Appalachian Mountains in the late 1960s; early experiences of Don and me living and working as artists and teachers in McDowell County, West Virginia; moving to the mountaintop of Jewell Ridge and transitioning over the years from being “outsiders” to being community members, and how the support I received for my artwork in Richlands and the broader region resulted in my mural career, as well as being a teacher of art at Southwest Virginia Community College; the broadening of my creative experience through college opportunities such as living, teaching, and painting in Scotland for a year with my family; the growth and development of my art as influenced by engaging in the issues, changes, history and future of our agricultural and coal-based community; and lastly, the profound inspiration of living in a beautiful, natural environment in which we were privileged to nurture our son, and from which Don and I continue to be nurtured as artists and citizens.

The Friends will be on hand to help or the answer any questions about membership to FOL of TCPL and how FOL helps the community. Light refreshments will also be served!

Please come join in the fun and celebrate life & love of Ellen Elmes and our way of living in the moment. We welcome all our Friends and any one wishing to become a Friend.

This is a free event but donation jars for FOL will be placed in prominent areas.
