"Grant Winner Announced"
1999-08-01 until 1999-08-01
Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation
Montreal, QC, CA Canada

Ms. Darlene Nguyen-Ely, the Seattle-based sculptor has been named to receive a second grant from the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation of Montreal, Quebec, CANADA. The foundation was founded in 1955 by C.G. Greenshields, Q.C. in memory of his mother. The purpose of the foundation is to aid talented artists under 32 years of age. Awards are limited to candidates working in the following: painting, drawing, printmaking, and sculpture.

Miss Nguyen-Ely was selected from a worldwide competition of over 10,000 candidates. Miss Nguyen-Ely is currently working on her Journey Continued Series. She said: When working on the Journey Series, which dealt with images of movement, I became interested in the structures of the ships and airplanes that are the symbols of a journey. After breaking down the structures to their basic components I noticed a similarity to the basic component of animal and plant life, the cell. The simple elegant forms of multi-cell plants and animals seemed a natural extension of my earlier transportation forms. The journey is now measured in terms of scale rather than speed. This switch to biological forms opened up a much greater freedom to explore shapes since nature seems to always be more imaginative in its choice of forms, connecting cells together in playful spirals, rings and zig-zags. Ms. Nguyen-Ely is currently being represented by Diane Farris (Vancouver, Canada), Sonia Zaks (Chicago,IL), Hunsaker/Schlesinger (Santa Monica, CA), and Washington Square Gallery (San Francisco, CA ). Her upcoming solo exhibitions will be at Diane Farris Gallery in Vancouver, Canada in September of 1999 and Sonia Zaks Gallery in Chicago, Illinois in October of 1999.
