Elm Miller Timms presents
Soul Songs : The World Within A Moment
During the month of June, Mulberry Art Studios will feature Soul Songs, The World Within A Moment, a collection of artwork by Elm Miller Timms, in the North Gallery. The exhibit will open with a First Friday Reception on June 3rd from 5pm until 8pm. The evening will be accompanied by live acoustic music as Elm is also a vocalist and combines her efforts with other local musicians*. The public is invited to meet the artist and linger for an experience that is sure to saturate the senses.
Elm speaks about her life and her work: “Throughout my life I have lived in both urban and rural settings inthis beautiful country we all share. I am sometimes drawn to explore the pulse and energy of the urban world in my drawings and paintings. Yet, it is the rural wilderness spaces where most of my work hovers and moves.
As I look back on my experience as an artist, I see that my natural instinct has been to translate my life and the world around me through my senses by creating or interpreting creation. As a child, when I wasn’t drawing or painting, I was singing. In quieter moods, I would often sit and try to memorize the paradox that every moment seems to hold.
An avid daydreamer still, I revel in following my imagination to find rare beauty in moments that, unexplored, seem the most common place. When I paint, the forming picture leads the way for me and seems to guide my eyes and hands while I work. My favorite part of sharing my art with others is listening to the new interpretations that each individual brings as they see my work through fresh eyes."
Elm returns to Mulberry Arts Studios for a second time this year after displaying a smaller study of collected works entitled “Elements of Nature” shown in the Snow Flake Gala in February. To welcome the warm months of summer, Elm has selected pieces that will connect the concept of natural elements with the feminine faces and forms that sometimes are a part of what she finds in “the paradox of a moment”. Elm’s passion for “playing with colors and textures” typically leads her to use a combination of mediums including acrylic paint, oil crayon, and colored pencil. This collection will include original paintings as well as gallery wrapped canvas giclee prints and framed giclee paper prints.
