About the Art

After a visit to my Wilmington studio by Art in Bloom Gallery owner Amy Grant, I was presented with the idea of showing a selection of works on paper at Pin Point Restaurant.  Since I had a cache of pieces 22 x 30 inches in my flat files and storage racks, we agreed it would be interesting to have all works a unified size.

Included in this selection are works I created and/or exhibited in Macedonia, Germany, Peru, Vermont, Bald Head Island, and Wilmington.  The mixed media in these pieces vary with acrylic and oil paint, graphite, collage, sgraffito, sewing, found objects, birch bark, India ink, sailing charts, and more.

I am also known as a ceramic artist, hand-building vessel sculpture, relief wall tiles, and other three dimensional objects. There are times I find the process of making a clay piece from start to finish laborious; therefore, working in other mediums can be quite a satisfying diversion. ~ Gayle Tustin, Wilmington, NC

“Asylum: Collages by Elizabeth Darrow”
June 12 - September 30, 2019
Thursday, June 20th, 6-9pm - Champagne Toast & Special Reception

“Asylum” Oil and collage on paper

Dine at Platypus & Gnome Restaurant to view “Asylum” an exhibit of collages by Wilmington artist, Elizabeth Darrow, as part of our partnership with CHECKER CAB productions and local restaurants.

Elizabeth Darrow has made Wilmington her home since 1977. Born in Hartford, Conn. Darrow is a 1967 graduate of Oberlin College (Oberlin, Ohio), where she majored in painting. She has been working in oil and collage throughout her career, usually in the manner of Abstract Expressionism.

She works in a variety of styles depending on her medium, but never works “from life” in the traditional sense. Most of the imagery that comes to her seems to hatch of its own accord, emerging from the process. Darrow enjoys working with color, repeating patterns and embedding humor (and angst) into her work. Each piece takes her on a journey of discovery where she hopes to lose herself to the process.

Join us for a special champagne toast and special reception for the artist on Thursday, June 20th from 6-8pm. The reception is free and open to the public with complimentary champagne and appetizers. If you would like to stay for dinner, please call 910-769-9300 for dinner reservations.
