Elizabeth Kelley Erickson’s recent work is the culmination of her lifelong exploration of the islands off Cape Porpoise, Maine. Her paintings and drawings are meditations on impermanence and reverence of nature and what it is communicating to us, including the notion of reciprocal joy - that “When we open to the joy of nature, nature takes joy in us.”
Her work has been exhibited in New England and California and has been collected nationally. She is a juried member and exhibits at the Barn Gallery in Ogunquit, Maine, a past juried member of the Los Angeles Art Association and has recieved numerous scholarhips.
Art + Archaeology:
She is the Senior Artist and a Field Archaeologist with Cape Porpoise Archaeological Alliance where her drawings contribute to the archaeological record in journal articles and presentations as well as documenting work held in private collections. Recent acquisitions by the Brick Store Museum have been included in the permanent exhibit.
