A Manhattan ‘island girl’ born and raised in New York City, Elise Beattie spent her first decades inspired by the artistic sights and sounds that city life provides. After college, the artist chose a new path - “the road less traveled” and that choice “has made all the difference.” Her paintings are a visual travel diary expressively created, and are on exhibit from November 6, 2006 through November 29 at the headquarters gallery of the National Association of Women Artists, 80th Fifth Avenue, (Suite 1405), in New York City
Elise Beattie’s life of travel and adventure started after she left Manhattan, when she began her journey in the islands of Hawaii. Ten years, and more than 10,000 experiences later, Beattie continues to travel down “the road” which has brought her artistic inspiration while exploring the majesty of North America. Her life has now come full circle, and she has brought her art back to the place where the adventure first began. the artist describes this whimsical collection of art as anthology of experiences put to paint.
The National Association of Women Artists is heading to its 118th Anniversary and since 1889, has been encouraging and promoting the work of professional women artists through exhibitions and merit prizes. Information on its many offerings and programs can be found at the website www.nawanet.org. This solo exhibition featuring the work of Elise Beattie, has been made possible through the generous support of the Blachette Hooker Rockefeller Foundation.
