A WALK THROUGH THE GALLERY
Exhibit curator, Sigrid Trumpy, met with fellow artists Neil Harpe and Cassandra Kabler to explore this show together. We hope you’ll enjoy their walk through the gallery.
“Elliott’s signature portraiture style combines expressive linear drawing with luscious color and brushwork. The line quality in much of Elliott’s work can be authoritative but often combined with a playful element as well. This is a very expressive and evocative painting in which the artist has lovingly captured his subject’s essence. Of all of Elliott Zuckerman’s portraits, Monty is my favorite.” -Neil Harpe
ANOTHER FRAME OF REFERENCE
Each of us brings our own perspective as we engage with the works in this show. Included here are additional references we hope enrich and expand your experience.
“Sonnet 7: How soon hath Time, the subtle thief of youth” by John Milton
How soon hath Time, the subtle thief of youth,
Stol’n on his wing my three-and-twentieth year!
My hasting days fly on with full career,
But my late spring no bud or blossom shew’th.
Perhaps my semblance might deceive the truth
That I to manhood am arriv’d so near;
And inward ripeness doth much less appear,
That some more timely-happy spirits endu’th.
Yet be it less or more, or soon or slow,
It shall be still in strictest measure ev’n
To that same lot, however mean or high,
Toward which Time leads me, and the will of Heav’n:
All is, if I have grace to use it so
As ever in my great Task-Master’s eye.
