ALL Looking Forward To Welcoming June Speaker

The Art League of Leland (ALL) invites artists and art enthusiasts to its next meeting on June 4, 4-6 pm, at the Leland Cultural Arts Center for a presentation by painter and collage artist Elizabeth Darrow and a screening of Elizabeth Darrow: Believing in the Process, a short documentary by Christina Capra, Robby Carl, and Jessie Robertson. The filmmakers will also be on hand to discuss their film. The meeting is free and open to the public.

A graduate of Oberlin College with a major in painting, Elizabeth Darrow has been working in oil and collage throughout her career. Repeating patterns, embedded humor (and angst), and color fill her artwork. She works in a variety of styles but never works “from life” in the traditional sense, preferring the imagery to hatch of its own accord. Darrow’s works may be found in private collections as well as in the permanent collections of the Cameron Art Museum (Wilmington, NC), Duke University Medical Center, R. J. Reynolds, Sara Lee Inc., Lowes, Wells Fargo, BB&T Bank, SAS Institute, and Nations Bank.

Filmmakers Christina Capra, Robby Carl, and Jessie Robertson will discuss the making of the documentary, which looks deeper into the many phases and processes of Darrow’s artwork, and screen the film for attendees.

EDITOR’S NOTE: We spoke to ALL President Barbara Hubbard and she gave us an update on the league’s efforts to manage future events. Her comments are below.

We do now have a social media presence on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and are encouraging our members to post pictures of any art they are producing. Our monthly newsletter is still going out. The most recent addition shared the results of our Vision 2020 and Beyond brainstorming session that was held in February. At that meeting we had a group of about 25 members work together to give feedback and input for the future of ALL.

We had to cancel our April meeting presenters (April 2- Mary Zlotnik and April 30- Steve Allen) but have rescheduled them for December 2020 and January 2021. We are looking into our options for a video/Zoom meeting in June if we need to cancel our physical meeting for that month. September 3 is the next scheduled meeting with Brain Evans presenting.

We have postponed our May “It’s ALL Art” Exhibition until October 10 -11. We will be doing a call for art from our members to put together a potential “traveling” show for next year that we hope to enter in various galleries. We are also working on some workshops that we hope to hold starting in late summer if as long as we are able to with all this craziness going on!
