Elisa Contemporary Art is pleased to present "25 Under 26 Exhibit"

Elisa Contemporary Art is pleased to present our new gallery exhibit, 25 Under 26.  This group shown features 25 artworks from US and International artists all priced under $2,600.  The exhibit opens on Thursday, October 19 and runs through December 14 at the Riverdale NY Gallery.
According to owner Lisa Cooper, "This is the first time we have created a price based exhibit at the gallery.  My goal is to share with people that art is accessible at every level and there is such a range of styles, types and creative visions to resonate with a diverse group of art buyers from the first-time buyer to the experienced collector.  I continue to strive to make art accessible and welcoming to all to experience living with art!"
The exhibit features architectural inspired works on paper and paintings by our international artists.  Highlights include cityscapes by Colombian artist, Alexis Duque; new imagined mixed media urban environments by Turkish artist, Yasemin Kackar-Demirel; Vallejo California street scenes captured in watercolor paintings and acrylic on wood by Armenian-American artist, Ferdinanda Florence and interiors by Marfa artist, Martha Hughes.
Nature inspired artworks include Botanical works on paper created with coffee, graphite and acrylic by California artist, Sara V Cole, small high gloss landscapes by Canadian artist, Marie Danielle Leblanc and two dreamy landscapes by South Carolina emerging artist, Ann Wood Mezian.  Mezian was recent winner selected by Elisa Contemporary Art in the " Healing Power of Art" competition presented by Manhattan Arts International.  Elisa Contemporary Art is pleased to be debuting the artwork of this new emerging artist.
