Cordelia Bailey on Elm Street opens March 7 in Keller

“Photography is making art with pixels. When working in this medium, you have to find the essence of a scene and tell a story. The viewer, who is bombarded with images from life all day, needs to be captivated quickly. You must seize their eye before they move on.”

Cordelia Bailey on Elm Street, a photography exhibit highlighting some of Bailey’s more accessibly beautiful photographs, is on display from March 7 to April 27, 2018 at Elm Street Studio in Keller. Please join us for a closing reception and Artist’s talk on Friday, April 27th from 6:00 to 8:00pm. For details and to see more of Bailey’s work, visit www.ElmStreetStudioKeller.com.

Extra in the Ordinary: Sarah Graham Exhibition at Elm Street Studio

Elm Street Studio is proud to showcase the stunning watercolors of Sarah Graham in our January 2018 Solo Exhibition. Discover for yourself why her work has won international recognition and why her portraits are said to capture the spirit of a person. Grahams’ paintings are a response to “real life” challenges, in pursuit of deeper and perhaps more powerful realities – realities made more beautiful by the fact that they have been built on difficulties.

Her work will be on display from January 3 to March 2. Meet the artist in person at our Artist’s Reception, Jan 20 from 7-9pm. Complimentary wine and hor d’oeuvres will be served. A portion of art sale proceeds will benefit the Agape Clinic in Dallas. For more information, please visit www.ElmStreetStudioKeller.com
