Thanks for the studio visit +Elizabeth Gilfilen -->
After a period exploring the notion of restraint–paring down her palette and limiting the number of marks–Elizabeth Gilfilen has returned to epic struggle http://www.twocoatsofpaint.com/2017/07/images-elizabeth-gilfilen.html

Baltimore’s most prestigious art prize is the Janet & Walter Sondheim Artscape Prize, a sizable fellowship awarded to artists who live or work in the Baltimore region. Unlike the DeCordova Museum of Art’s Rappaport Prize, which was recently awarded to Sam Durant, an artist who grew up in the Boston area but now lives in California, the Sondheim Artscape Prize rewards professional artists who participate directly in the local art community. http://www.twocoatsofpaint.com/2017/07/recognition-artists-sondheim-artscape-prize-baltimore.html
